Free First-Aid Class

0315_scene_Free First-Aid ClassA Dongguan Community Event, the second of its kind, will take place on April 12. The series of free functions designed to benefit and inform the lives of city residents, and lend exposure to sponsoring participants, brings Dr. Poon Wai Kwong, a full-time consultant with the Chinese University of Hong Kong’s Accident and Emergency Medicine Academic Unit, to teach emergency pediatric care.

The two sessions, each running two hours, will focus on a practicum of management techniques in choking, various emergencies, such as burns, bleeding, and a demonstration for using a Ventolin inhaler. Co-organized by the Dongguan Dragons Baseball Club with HERE! Dongguan, Dr. Poon was commissioned by Global Doctor and the event will be held at the bottom floor at PALS Family Restaurant in Dongcheng’s IEO.

The event is focused toward the area’s English speaking families, but is also highly recommended for area teachers and service industry staff for a safer overall Dongguan community. Last March, Dr. Poon instructed attendees in Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Anyone wanting to participate can fill out the online application at Only 50 seats are available, so act fast.
