GSPH Homecoming Day, August 5, 2023

The 5th Homecoming Day was held at Hinohara Hall on Saturday, August 5. Homecoming Day is an annual event held to deepen exchanges between alumni, current students from diverse backgrounds, and faculty members. The event began with an address by Professor Nobuo Nishi, newly appointed Dean of the Graduate School this year, followed by a report on recent updates of the school, internship experience reports and presenting research at overseas workshops by current students. This was followed by a self-introduction session, which was also held last year. Participants chose one of the initials of the school name (S, L, P, or H) and created a keyword associated with themselves. The presentations with those keywords included a variety of topics such as work, research, hobbies, and special skills, were very entertaining and created a friendly atmosphere in the hall.

In the second half, six alumni (Dr. Kazuhiro Okada, Dr. Aliza KC Bhandari, Dr. Tomohiro Ochi, Dr. Bibha Dhungel, Mr. Shota Mashimo, and Ms. Noriko Matsushita) gave presentations on their careers after graduation. The alumni, who now work in hospitals, academic institutions and medical-related companies, shared how they have been able to translate the questions they find in their daily work into research and present their findings in papers and at academic conferences, and how they have taken a leadership role in clinical research at their workplaces. PhD graduates also spoke about how they has pursued a career as a university faculty member and how their research skills have also been useful in community service activities.

After all the presentations were over, all the participants took a group photo at the venue and then went to a social event which was filled with the joy of seeing faculty members and old friends again after a long time.

Thank you very much for your cooperation. We are planning another event in August next year, so please join us.

GSPH Homecoming Day, August 21, 2022

On August 21, the 4th Homecoming Day of the Graduate School of Public Health was held at Hinohara Hall in the St. Luke's Center for Clinical Academia. Although the 2020 and 2021 homecoming events were held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's event was held in-person with adequate infection control measures for the first time in three years.

This year's Homecoming Day was designed for socializing and featured two main sessions, entitled St. Luke's GSPH Summer Salon at the Graduate School of Public Health.

1. Self-introduction presentations
In order to make it fun for alumni and students of different grades to get to know each other, we asked them to make self-introduction cards in advance using one of the letters of G, S, P, or H (Graduate School of Public Health). The cards were made into booklets and distributed to all participants. Eight students and alumni gave presentations on stage, offering interesting topics such as their research, favorite things, future dreams, and the NGO they organize. In addition, students who participated in the activities of a non-profit organization run by Associate Professor Sato that supports children with cancer and their families gave a presentation on their experiences.

2. Talks by alumni on their career path
Three alumni, Ms. Haruka Maeda, Mr. Kei Hosaka, and Mr. Shotaro Asano, who are on unique career paths after completing the program, gave lectures on their current jobs. Ms. Maeda, who is currently working as a researcher at Nagasaki University, talked about her research on the efficacy and economic evaluation of COVID-19 vaccines. Mr. Hosaka, who works for an IT company, talked about various examples of applications that are widely used in the health and medical fields. Mr. Asano, who runs a company developing digital therapeutics, talked about his current work and how the knowledge and experience he gained in GSPH are being utilized in his current work.

The audience was very interested in the variety of presentations and asked many questions. After the session, there was time for free talk, during which participants were happy to see each other again after a long absence and exchanged business cards with alumni they had met for the first time. We hope that opportunities such as this one will encourage alumni and students with different professions, nationalities, interests, and hobbies to get to know each other, and that this will lead to new research, projects, and other innovations in the future.

Thank you very much for your cooperation.
