  This seminar was held in the auditorium/cafeteria of the Newport News Japanese School and organized by this school and the Society.

   We invited two Japanese doctors, Dr. Katsuta and Dr. Takabe from Virginia Commonwealth University.      

  Thirty-five (25) people attended, and most of them were from the Newport News Japanese School.


Our Japanese committee chairman, Mr.Fukasawa's opening address preceded the seminar.

Dr. Katsuta's theme was "About constipation" She kindly explained mechanism from digestion to discharge, cause of constipation, and how to deal with it.

Dr. Takabe's theme was "What's wrong with being fat?' He commented humorously about influence of obesity and its conditions in the United States in plain terms.
