The GA course has actively formed partnerships with some departments in major universities in the Kansai area such as Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe Universities and frequently invites young foreign researchers from those institutions so that the course will give their special seminars in English to the course students. On June 2nd the school invited a young Yemeni dentist Ms. Christina El-saaidi from the Department of Global Health and Socio-epidemiology, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University and held the fourth Global Seminar. She introduced her country from geographical and cultural perspectives and talked about her research and also referred to serious challenges her country is facing. During the seminar the students had two discussions in small groups about the subjects she gave. Many students tried to think of helpful ideas to improve serious health situation in a distant country. The seminar made us notice the existence of complexities in the global community and the necessity for action to reduce them.
