A new social service project by Community Health Experts was launched in Shanghai on Wednesday to promote physical and mental wellbeing in the city.
Co-launched by the Yangpu District Committee and the Party Committee of Shanghai University of Sport, the project will cover grassroots community service stations in 12 neighborhoods of Yangpu district.
The project, which will be held for six weeks at each station, will see experts enter communities to guide residents in matters such as sports nutrition, fitness, injury protection, and counselling. These experts include professors from Shanghai University of Sport and representatives of elite athletes.
Shen Wei, Secretary of the Party Committee of the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, said that there is an urgent need to build a system that can prevent non-communicable physical and mental diseases in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
