We are touched by your actions when we see how you support the school, taking care of yourself, and moving out to the new dormitory. We see a future doctor in you.

To return to our harmonious and peaceful campus life, the university sincerely needs your understanding and cooperation in fighting against the virus. We can do it together, shoulder to shoulder.

For those who are currently in China, we hope you:
