I am pleased to announce that the Japanese subsession titled “From Terrorism to Complementary Medicine,” will be held at the Neurocritical Care Society (NCS) 16th Annual Meeting. This session was made possible by Gretchen M. Brophy, president of NCS, and Jose I. Suarez, chair of the annual meeting, the theme of which is “Neurocritical Care Without Borders.”
In this session, diverse topics are presented in Japanese with simultaneous translation into English and English language PowerPoint presentation. The keynote address, “Complementary and Alternative Medicine: A Japanese Perspective” will be presented by Professor Toshinori Ito, a big name in the fields of pancreatic surgery and evidence-based integrative medicine. Ito will discuss this topic also considering the neurocritical care and disaster medicine.
Other diverse topics will be presented by Japanese investigators in their native language, and Dr. Gentle S. Shrestha, famous Nepalese neurointensivist, will give a lecture entitled “Practice in a Country With Terrorism and the Needs of Global Collaboration in the Education of Neurocritical Care,” because Japan lacks terrorism.
We welcome many native English speaking and global attendees on Thursday, Sept. 27, from 8:30-10 a.m.
