Science Council of Japan Open Symposium -- What is happening at the forefront of medical care?

Medical care is achieving remarkable development in terms of prevention, diagnosis, and treatment; however, not all patients receive sufficient benefit from such cutting-edge medical care.

Specialists, mainly members of Science Council of Japan, will introduce the spirit of Tekijuku that OGATA Koan aimed to achieve in Osaka, review the history of his battles against small pox, review his great achievements, and explain the progress of modern advanced medical care in ways easy to understand.
The presenters hope that many will attend.
