He recalls that that year electrified railway ran to Shatin only. And Ma On Shan Road stopped at City One Shatin. Mr. Lo, who is approaching retirement, offers a piece of advice to his students: ‘Physical education hinges on teachers’ enthusiasm and dedication. Teachers have to set an example to students by actively doing sports, motivating them to press forward in the journey of life against all odds.’ 离情依依 留影寄语 Parting Shot, Parting Words 陈重娥:医人比医病重要 (页8) Juliana Chan: It is more important to treat the people than their symptoms (p. 8) Photo by ISO staff 中 大的糖尿病研究由来已久。适逢香港糖尿病及肥胖症研究所成立十周 年,我们特回顾一下该所的工作,并与其所长陈重娥细谈,探讨一下这位 时刻以病人福祉为念的医生∕研究员∕教授的全人治疗理念。 有些病人理性上知道病的风险,但祸未临头,总是吊儿郎当,只有感受到医生护士 真的紧,才乖乖吃药,控制饮食。医者与病人的沟通能促进治疗,在现代人急 促的生活节奏下,这尤其难能可贵。 科技进步,沟通看似愈加便捷,一个文字短讯,再不,发几个图像符号,就算大功 告成。然而,这当真能代替面对面的交流吗? 暑假将临,趁闲暇,别再依靠电子屏幕的片言只语了,起头,迈开脚步,亲身 出现在你关爱的人面前,说出你要表达的心意吧。 T he Chinese University’s diabetes research has a long history. On the 10th anniversary of the Hong Kong Institute of Diabetes and Obesity, we review the institute’s work and chat with its director Prof. Juliana Chan to learn more about the whole-person approach to treatment of this doctor, researcher and professor who makes patients’ well-being her first priority. Some patients are well aware of the risks of their illnesses, but choose to turn a blind eye as long as they still feel ‘fine’. It’s only at the urging of the doctors or nurses that they may change their lifestyles and take their medications on time. Good communication between patients and medical practitioners can enhance the quality of treatment. This is valuable given the hurried tempo of contemporary societies. Technological advancement seems to have made communication more efficient, to the extent that words are deemed too tedious and replaced by symbols and visuals. But can these short-cuts really replace face-to-face interaction? The summer holidays are upon us. Why not take a break from the digital screen, take a walk under the sun, and express your feelings to your loved ones in person? 《中大通讯》于暑期停刊,下期(四六一期)将于8月19日出版。 The CUHK Newsletter will take a summer break and resume publication on 19 August.
