SME Networking Community Workshop: Women's Health in Japan

Regular health check-ups and routine tests are the best way to catch hidden issues and serious illnesses early, or prevent them from developing in the first place.  And yet, it can be very easy to put off these appointments amid our many other day-to-day priorities.


For foreign women living in Japan, the added anxieties that come with the language barrier, as well as different testing methods and approaches, can become further disincentives to book in for your regular check-up.


In this workshop, Dr. Miori Tomisaka, Obstetrician and Gynecologist of Sakura Harune Clinic Ginza, will discuss the importance of regular women’s health checks, how foreign women can seek testing and check-ups in Japan, and other advice for navigating the Japanese healthcare system.

Date: Wed 27 October, 2021

Time: 18:00 - 19:00 JST

Location: Zoom

【概要】

身体の目に見えない問題や深刻な病気を早期に発見したり、未然に防ぐには、定期的な健康診断や検査が大切です。しかし、日々の忙しさにかまけて、ついつい後回しにしてしまうことがあります。

日本に住む外国人女性にとっては、言葉の壁による不安や、検査方法やアプローチの違いが、定期検診の予約を妨げる要因となっています。

今回のワークショップでは、はるねクリニック銀座の副院長であり産婦人科医でもある富坂美織先生が、女性の定期検診の重要性や、外国人女性が日本で検査を受ける方法、日本の医療制度を利用するためのアドバイスなどをお話します。


*参加者の皆様には、スピーカーのプレゼンテーションの後に自己紹介をしていただき、その後のディスカッションセッションにも積極的に参加していただきと思います。ご自身の経験や考え、質問などを共有していただきたいと思います。視聴のみを希望する方は、カメラをオフにしてご参加ください。
