[ONLINE EVENT] Japan Society of Northern California – Same Disease, Different Approaches | How Japan and the U.S. are Fighting COVID-19

Tuesday, April 28, 2020 | 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The U.S. and Japan have adopted very different approaches to responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, including on testing, tracking, social distancing, procurement of medical materials and devices and treatment of the illness. We will know in the next weeks how successful these varying approaches have been. Please join us for a webinar on April 28 to listen to two medical doctors from Stanford discuss the different approaches that the U.S. and Japan have taken, with reference to the strategies taken in China, Taiwan and South Korea; the results so far in countering the virus; what we can learn from each other; and prospects for containing the virus and restarting economic activity. Our speakers are individuals with deep expertise in health care and medical devices, but who can speak plain lay language to demystify the complicated issues that COVID-19 raises.

Fumiaki Ikeno, a Research Associate, Cardiovascular Medicine, Stanford University
Bryant Lin, Co-Director of Stanford’s Center for Asia Health Research and Education
Cho-Wei “Jowy” Chen, CEO, Taipei Medical University Biomedical Accelerator
