Issue No. 134 Feb 2023
The Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) organised the Embracing Ageing - Health Management and Promotion Programme (EAHMP) – Young and Old Forum on 16 February.
At this first major EAHMP event themed "Sport and Physical and Mental Health”, 100 participants, including LU’s young and older ambassadors, discussed and learned the benefits of sports and exercises, and how they relate to physical and mental health.
Since September 2021, EAHMP has collaborated with over 20 centres for the elderly, providing community services and workshops that have given over 5,500 health assessments, and held mindfulness and yoga sessions for 850 older adults. The programme has also trained 60 young and old ambassadors, who now provide community services to the community.
