A publication of the University of Utah Center on Aging
Special Guest From Japan
On November 26, 2013 the Center on Aging was pleased to welcome Professor Nanako Tamiya, director of Health Service Research (HSR) at the University of Tsukuba, Japan. Dr. Tamiya is a co-investigator on a COA Pilot grant with Akiko Kamamura, and is working with her University organization to form a new "Center for Aging and Health Services Research". Her purpose in visiting the University of Utah was to learn more about our Center on Aging in order to help serve as a model as they build their Center.
