Minamata disease was the first human-caused food poisoning incident caused by methylmercury, and more than 68 years have passed since it was officially recognized in 1956. One of the activities of the Minamata Disease Center Soshisha is to listen to the words of people who have concerns about Minamata disease, keep records of them, and spread the word about Minamata disease. However, as patients age, the time limit for hearing is approaching. Since public support funds are not available for patient consultation and interviews, Ayus supported this activity for three years starting in 2021. Currently, Soshisha views the experience of Minamata disease as an asset for humanity, and is collecting and preserving materials, providing information, and producing books. Based on the above interviews, we have compiled the patient’s life history and related photos into a booklet, and are focusing on activities to inform the world about the current situation and reality of Minamata disease patients. In this online seminar, we will ask Mr. Michi Nagano, who is at the center of this activity, what he has learned from listening to patients over the past three years, what he has focused on, and put the patients’ experiences into words. What are you aiming to achieve by publishing this book? We would also like to hear from you about what you plan to focus on in the future. -Details page-https://ngo-ayus.jp/2024/05/20240510-2/ [Date and time] May 23, 2024 (Thursday) 20:00-21:00 (with slight extension) [Format] Online (using ZOOM meeting) [Participation fee] Free (tickets with some donations available) [Speaker] Michi Nagano (Managing Director, Minamata Disease Center Soshisha General Incorporated Foundation) [Lecturer Profile] 1983 Minamata City, Kumamoto Prefecture birth.
