SACU ChinaCafé with Jessica Darling (SACU members event)

February 19, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Our 2019 series of SACU ChinaCafés is set to begin on Tuesday February 19th, from 6 pm to 8 pm at Bush House, King’s College London, Strand Campus, and is co-hosted by the Lau China Institute. Our theme this year is historical and present health care here and in China.


The first session will feature Jessica Darling who spent her childhood in China with her father, surgeon Dr Joshua Horn, author of ‘Away With All Pests: An English Surgeon in People’s China 1954-1969’.  She subsequently returned to the UK to earn a nursing degree and then went back to Beijing where she completed an acupuncture apprenticeship course.  Jessica will speak about her experiences in China and discuss today’s health care needs.


SACU ChinaCafés are small meetings, with the room laid out in cafe style, so that conversations with other participants about the theme are relaxed and easy. They are membership-only spaces with newcomers very welcome to join at the first SACU ChinaCafé that they attend. All non-members pay £8, which entitles them to a year’s membership of SACU and of course, free attendance at all future SACU ChinaCafé meetings as well as the other benefits of membership. 


Jessica Darling is ideally placed to start our series of three SACU ChinaCafés on the theme of “Health and Wellbeing” and help us think about English-Chinese cultural understanding of Health and Wellbeing. 


Do come and join us!


Venue: Room 6.05, Northeast Wing, Bush House, KCL, Strand Campus, London WC2B 4BG
