Body SOS — Spreading the Message on Hypertension

I was invited to be on Channel 8's Body SOS programme (小毛病,大问题, Season 7, Episode 26) in December 2018.

Host Mark Lee and the celebrity guests were affable and entertaining on and off camera. One of my experience highlights was the opportunity to take Ms. Pan Ling Ling's blood pressure!
