June 7th, 2016
On June 7th the school invited Dr. Koichi Kono, emeritus professor of Osaka Medical College and held the 1st SGH Special Seminar.
He introduced major infectious diseases in the world, explaining their backgrounds, and pointed out the role of public health in a globalized world. He also gave us important information we should consider in going abroad, showing a variety of serious cases in the past.
The seminar was so meaningful for the students in the GA course, who are required to do a research project related to global health.
