The Kyushu University Dr. Nakamura Tetsu Project: Passing on the Spirit of Dr. Nakamura to the Next Generation
The late Dr. Nakamura Tetsu (1946-2019), University Professor of the Institute for Advanced Study at Kyushu University and an alumnus of the Kyushu University School of Medicine, dedicated 35 years of his life to medical care, irrigation, and agriculture in rural Afghanistan and Pakistan. To share his spirit, resolve, and work with future generations, Kyushu University launched a project in 2020. In cooperation with the Peshawar-kai, the Japanese NGO that supports Dr. Nakamura and his team’s work in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and also in cooperation with inside and outside the university, the project is being promoted through three core initiatives: Dr. Nakamura Tetsu Memorial Archive, the Nakamura Tetsu Digital Archive and the Nakamura Tetsu Memorial Lecture Series.
