The Ibaraki International Association and Tsukuba Cultural Foundation are holding a seminar on medical translation assistance in Tsukuba. The seminar is open to all people who are involved in medical issues that foreign residents face. The target audience for the seminar includes people who offer translation assistance at medical facilities in Tsukuba, people involved in the medical profession in Tsukuba, and other people who are working towards better international relations in Tsukuba.
Information on how to apply (deadline: February 9) can be found on the Tsukuba Cultural Foundation website.
This seminar will be held in Japanese, so it might be difficult for some foreign residents to attend, but I think it important for us to know that these kinds of events happen in Tsukuba. In fact, it would be a lot better if the foreign community were "officially" informed of these kinds of events (instead of finding out about them when I happen to see them on the city hall website while trawling for things to write TsukuBlog posts about) so we could lend our input and experiences to help enrich the event.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
