As part of the University of Hong Kong's celebration of 120 years of medical education, Professor Raymond Liang, Acting Dean of the university's Faculty of Medicine, hosted the 2007 annual meeting of the U21 Health Sciences group.

Colleagues from public health and exercise science joined over 140 delegates from medicine, dentistry, nursing, health and rehabilitation sciences, and pharmacy at this year's meeting in Hong Kong (27-29 September 2007).

Following on from the morning multidisciplinary sessions, the various discipline groups convened separately over two afternoons. The discipline group meetings provided colleagues with an opportunity to explore specific issues and follow up on matters introduced during the multidisciplinary segment of the annual meeting.

Associated events included an e-health workshop with practical sessions on telehealth; a nursing doctoral forum involving twelve PhD students from seven schools in six countries; a leadership in health sciences workshop; and dentistry's forensic odontology and disaster victim identification symposium.

Outcomes of the annual meeting and associated events include new initiatives and further development of current projects.
