5th Tekijuku Workshop

2012-9-15 (Sat) - 2012-10-13 (Sat)

As part of a project to honor the achievements of Tekijuku, the Tekijuku Memorial Association has held Tekijuku Workshops since 2008 in order discuss historical roles played by Tekijuku and its spirit.

The 5th Workshop consists of three sessions beginning from Saturday, September 15. In this workshop, based on the medical history of Osaka and Tekijuku, lecturers will speak about diseases observed in Osaka, explaining the process through which TB spread throughout Japan. It is hoped that many will attend these commemorative lectures.
