Taking care of everyone's health, especially the elderly, seems simple, but in fact, we only care about medical examination and treatment, but we have not received comprehensive health management and advice on improving health. In the future, taking care of the elderly becomes urgent when the rate of old age increases, and this is the desire of many people. This webinar has made a substantial contribution to an advanced medical model, which Van Lang University will support to make the needs of many people come true."
