Dr Edward Leong Che-hung MD, former Chairman of the Hospital Authroity; and Dr Eric Chun-Pu Chu DC, Chairman of the CDAHK joined the Women@Wanchai and shared on the topics of “HeForShe” and “Chiropractic and women’s health”. Dr Leung shared about HeForShe, which is a solidarity campaign for the advancement of women initiated by UN Women. Its goal is to achieve equality by encouraging men and boys as agents of change and take action against negative inequalities faced by women and girls.

On the other hand, it is not unusual for a mother to raise a family while working or volunteering to build her community. Women in particular are at increased risk for certain diseases and should pay attention to minimizing these risk factors. Dr Chu shared more about what diseases may impact women and how chiropractic can help to prevent them.
