Thank you for visiting my page. My work and research interests revolve around Healthcare Management which I attribute to my upbringing in a small town in the countryside of Gifu, Japan where my family and I experienced several difficulties finding good medical services and a nursing facility for my late grandmother. This led me to pursue research on the state of the Japanese healthcare and nursing system and although it has come a long way since then, I feel that it still lacks transparency and most still have very limited means to find which hospitals or doctors would best address their health issues.
