English with Japanese Summary Explanation、Sapporo Medical University (S1W17) East Bldg. 1F, Entrance is free for everyone.

5月28日(土) 13:30-16:30 (途中休憩、茶菓あり)

演題: 認知症,特にアルツハイマー病を学びませんか

演者:相馬 仁(札幌医科大学,医療人育成センター)



Dr. Sohma began the presentation by sharing an edited version of a speech delivered by Dr. Gary Small which is accessible on YouTube.  I recommend that you watch the full version of his speech because you can select the “Close Captioned” option and read the English for those who might feel the spoken English is too fast.  However, do keep in mind that the captions are not perfect as they are machine generated.  In his talk, Dr. Sohma basically shared abut half of this speech at the meeting.  There is a PowerPoint file which corresponds to the slides that Dr. Sohma chose from the video clip by Dr. Small.  These were prepared bilingually to help the Japanese audience to be able to follow the rapid spoken English.

Dr. Small’s speech can be viewed by clicking on the link below.  You can expand it to full screen view. ~ Please go to HMSC website ( for presentation.
