The next JMSA Health Seminar at the Nippon Club will be a very special lecture by Dr. Tomoaki Kato, Chief of the Division of Abdominal Organ Transplantation at Columbia University Medical Center. The topic of the lecture is ex-vivo surgery for cancer patients, in which abdominal organs are first removed from the body for tumor resection, then healthy organs are returned into the abdominal cavity. The lecture will be given in Japanese. Please join us for this very exciting talk!

Complementary refreshments will be served at the reception.

To attend the seminar, please RSVP by calling The Nippon Club at 212-581-2223, or by emailing Mr. Naito at
