The Last Great Adventure: Growing Old in Japan

最後の大冒険:日本で歳を取る

Speaker: Wm. (Wilhelmina) Penn

July 28th, Sunday 14:00 - 16:30

Growing old in Japan is the ultimate Japan experience, but what’s the best way to prepare? Penn will give a quick introduction to what she considers the top ten takeaway points from her book and talk a little bit about her most recent research on how to make Living Wills in Japan. Then the meeting will be opened up for Q&A and, if time allows, small group discussions.
 
日本で年をとることは究極の日本の経験ですが、準備するための最良の方法は何ですか?ペンの本では考慮すべきトップ10ポイントについて分かりやすい紹介をします。また彼女の最近のリビングウィル研究について少し話します。その後、会議では質疑応答がおこなわれ、時間が許せば、小グループでの討議がもたれます。
