July 2018   -   21st Birthday Party

To celebrate the "Children of 1997" Birth Cohort Study and the "Children of 1997" participants turned 21 together, the School of Public Health of The University of Hong Kong hosted a grand birthday party on 28 July 2018 at Loke Yew Hall, The University of Hong Kong. In addition to nearly 500 participants, we also invited famous singer Mr. Lam Yik-hong, international relations scholar Dr. Shen Xu-hui and HKU alumni Mr. Law Wing-chung to celebrate together. In the sharing session, they shared their thoughts and experiences under the title of "Me in 1997" and "Me in 21".

August 2013 to 2017  - Biobank Clinical Follow Up

We launched a Biobank Clinical Follow-up from August 2013 to December 2017. We set up several study sites in Hong Kong, included in Sha Tin, Yau Ma Tei and North Point for the convenience of all the “Children of 1997” participants. During the follow-up, we conducted a health assessment, including lung function tests, body fat percentage tests, and collection of biospecimens, such as blood, saliva, urine, hair and nails. Participants completed questionnaires about their health and lifestyle. We do really value the contribution of the "Children of 1997"'s participants, as every participant is a unique member of this long-term study. By joining our follow-up, participants support public health research in Hong Kong.
