I used to do research in the Republic of Palau. I was alone in the country, and I was nervous, but there was a coordinator from the Ministry of Health of Palau who was kind to me. One day I went to see him at his office and was suddenly informed that he had passed away. It was sudden cardiac death. He was a young man who had been fine just a few months before, and now he was suddenly going to die. I cried in front of the office for a while. It was a moment when I learned firsthand about the current situation in the world.

The number of cardiogenic cardiac arrest cases in Japan exceeds 70,000 per year. I want to do something about this problem. If we want change, young people must speak up and act first. Half of the world's population is made up of young people under the age of '30s. Not only cardiogenic cardiac arrest, but I believe that Japan's healthcare sector will be force the challenge soon. It is necessary to make the right changes in a bottom-up, "people's" driven manner, while incorporating technology.

I am happy to have this opportunity to propose, learn, and act on the future of healthcare, starting with young people. Let's create the future of healthcare from here together.
