<International Teleconference Seminar 2017>


UOEH together with National Taiwan University, Universiti Brunei Darussalam, Khon Kaen University (Thailand) and Ateneo de Manila University (The Philippines) conducted International Teleconference Seminar 2017, also called International Perspectives in Environmental Health Issues. Every Tuesday from September 12 to December 19 (except for Oct. 17), we shared fourteen live lectures including four lectures provided by UOEH. A wide range of topics on Occupational Health reflecting each country's situation lead to a meaningful Q&A session after every lecture.


Five lectures were provided by President Higashi, Prof. Yatera, Prof. Matsuura, Prof. Yamato and Assoc Prof. Izumi. Profs. Nakata and Urano, Vice Directors of the International Center, Assoc. Prof. Yamamoto and Research Associate Odgerel actively facilitated the lectures as coordinators.
