On Saturday February 27th 2010, Kinan Hospital organized lectures for community in collaboration with Mie University. The gathering was sponsored by Ministry of Education (MEXT Japan) “International Cooperation Initiative” to promote Education for Sustainable Development. After the opening remarks of Dr. Noguchi the President of Kinan Hospital, Professor Yuko Takeda introduced “Education for Sustainable Development: its importance for community development and health promotion in Kinan”. Then lectures were given by two invited speakers, a physician couple, Dr. Tantip Thamrongwaranggoon and Dr. Apisit Thamrongwaranggoon. Dr. Tantip and Dr. Apisit have been working in a rural area of northeast of Thailand, Ubonrat for last 24 years and shared their experiences on how they have collaborated with community people to promote self-sufficiency in the area which eventually has brought health and happiness in the area. We learned many tips and wisdoms to empower community which we felt relevant in Kinan area. The lectures were given in English and translated into Japanese by Dr. Yuko Takeda. After the lectures, many participants asked questions and stated their comments with enthusiasms. Dr Noriko Nakamae, a dedicated physician at Kinan Hospital asked Dr. Apisit how he keeps up with up-to-date medicine while working in a rural area. Dr. Apisit replied that he utilizes networks with his colleagues so that he can ask advice or can refer his patients. The meeting extended almost an hour because the audience wanted to interact with speakers and appreciated their comments and advice. At the end of the meeting, on behalf of the participants, Dr. Noguchi expressed his deep appreciation to the guest speakers by presenting flowers and gifts.
