“De-stress – the path to success!” Art and music activity by HKU Medical Students
19 Jan 2013
To promote the awareness of proper stress management, a group of third-year medical students from HKU Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine organised an art and music activity called “De-stress – the path to success!” on January 19, 2013 in the pedestrian area of Patterson Street, Causeway Bay.
During the event, members of the public were invited to select their favorite songs from a playlist for piano performance by the students. Many passersby were captivated by the performance. They were also invited to throw paint-soaked sponges to form a large painting to release pressure. Students distributed leaflets from the Hong Kong Mental Health Association and the Occupational Health and Safety Council at the site with an aim to enhance people’s knowledge on stress management.
This is a student learning activity of the Problem-based Public Health module in the MBBS curriculum offered by the Department of Community Medicine, HKU.
