University hospital to hold "a medical lecture meeting on deafness" in Tokyo

June 17, 2013

Showa University Hospital in Tokyo will hold the 10th citizen public seminar on Saturday, June 29 which a Deaf/deaf person can also participate with the use of sign-language interpreting, note taking, or a magnetic loop (hearing-aid support system).

Hayase* Kumi* (早瀬久美), the first Deaf pharmacist nationally licensed, will give a lecture. She works at the hospital as a pharmacist.

Showa University Hospital established a space for the Deaf/deaf outpatients in March, 2007, which was the first in the whole country as a university hospital in order that a Deaf/deaf patient and a medical staff may take effective communication as a motto for safe and sufficient medical treatment.
