Our online learning series (Zoom) focuses on the topic that is important for everyone – Immune System.
What is this session about?
Strong immune system is important for protecting yourself from all kinds of illnesses. Especially immunity becomes the most effective weapon to fight against COVID-19. In addition to the knowledge of boosting immunity that commonly understood, this seminar also focuses on the strategies for older adults. Join us to learn how you can effectively boost your immunity!
