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
