CTPCLC Symposium header 

Eight of the nine students presented at this year's Chua Thian Poh Community Leadership Centre (CTPCLC) Symposium on 23 April were USP students. They spoke passionately about the research they had conducted in various areas, ranging from how community partners and neighbours can enable the elderly to take ownership of their well-being to enhancing the experiences of nursing home residents. Mr Desmond Lee, Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for National Development, graced the occasion as Guest-of-Honour.
