A Message from our President

Akio Kagawa
President

Currently, Japan is the world's top country for longevity, but the abundant modern diet has given birth to a new problem, an increase in the number of elderly people requiring care for lifestyle related diseases such as diabetes, cerebral infarction and myocardial infarction.

Since it’s founding, this school has concentrated it’s efforts on nutritional science and health science education and research based on the theme of “Food and Health”. In order to promote the maintenance and improvement of Japanese health, we have educated many registered dietitians, dietitians, medical technologists, school nurses, home economics teachers and nutrition teachers. In this country of decreasing birthrates and aging population, the social role that this school is playing will attract more and more attention.

Based on the history and traditions that we have cultivated, we educate nutrition and health related specialists that are needed by society, while constantly improving our educational and research activities.
