[CANCELLED] Healthcare in China 101 – An Introduction for Beginners

January 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.

Which hospitals should you go to? What to do in case of an emergency?

Have you ever faced yourself with one of these questions??

If so, you should know that healthcare in China is radically different from the Swiss healthcare system.

For several reasons, foreigners in China and their families are vulnerable to many health risks.

But most of them simply don’t even realize it.

However, it is actually quite easy to prevent those risks and to protect yourself.

In this session, we will dive deep into this topic and make you discover solutions available to everyone that will help you save time and money.

What we will talk about:

  • Basics of healthcare in China – Hospitals, doctors, treatments, medicines, emergency etc.
  • Private Medical Coverage – How does it work? How to make the most out of it.
  • Tips to best protect your health and make your life easier
  • Case studies and Mistakes to avoid.

Dr. Emily Kara
