The 10th Global Seminar by A Foreign Researcher Is Held

June 6th, 2017

On June 6th the school invited a rising researcher from Republic of the Sudan, Dr. Riham Mohamed from the Department of Global Health and Socio-epidemiology, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University and held the tenth Global Seminar.

She first gave students a general introduction of her country, such as its geographic information, climate, language, religion, and economy, and then showed the relations between Sudan and Japan.

After that she moved on to her country’s health status and entered her main topic “Can we stop the rising epidemic of Diabetes in Sudan?” Few Japanese seem to associate Sudan with diabetes, but her reference to a few cultural backgrounds of the country such as a totally different sense of beauty from the Japanese as to beautiful women made us understand that diabetes has become a serious rising epidemic of the country. For most Japanese Sudan may not be so familiar, but her talk made us feel it a little closer to us. After her talk, she faced many questions from students, which seems to show how interesting it was.
