The Nethersole School of Nursing of the Faculty of Medicine at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) organised the “Community Caring Day cum CUHK Nethersole School of Nursing Alumni Carnival cum 30th Anniversary Kick-off Ceremony” on January 30 to embark on the year-long celebrations for the School’s 30th Anniversary in 2021. The event attracted over 4,500 registrations for its various activities, with participation by older adults in over 20 local community centres and aged homes, alumni and their families, and the general public. To protect the participants from the risk of COVID-19, the majority of the activities during the day were conducted virtually.
