Vice President for Academic Affairs and Director of Center for Sustainable Development and Social Innovation of TKU Hui-Huang Hsu mentioned in his remark that Taiwan’s society is facing 2 impacts: low birth rate and aging. The concept of “Strong Generation”, vigorously advocated by Max Wu, Chairman of Strong Generation Educational, Scientific and Cultural Association, encourages the elderly to keep pursuing self-achievement more proactively and to make contributions to the society. Tamkang actively provides more care and services to Strong Generation through the practice of USR projects and the establishment of College of Precision Healthcare. He wished that the discussions and exchanges in the forum could attract more attention to related issues and urge the government to plan more policies.
