Biography

Professor Aileen Chan has been serving at the Nethersole School of Nursing, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) since 1997. During the years, she has taken a variety of teaching and administrative roles. Currently, Professor Chan is an Associate Professor (Practice in Nursing) of the School.

Professor Chan received her PhD in Social Medicine from CUHK. Her research interest focuses on advancing knowledge in the area of Tai Chi, a mind body therapy. She has established a research programme to investigate the effectiveness of Tai Chi among people with cardiovascular risk factors and various chronic illnesses, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cognitive impairment and sleep disturbances, and among hidden elders. The quality of her research has been reflected in the successful acquisition of external funding for helping people to develop Tai Chi skills and incorporate such exercises into their daily lives.
