Gain insights on Japan’s Fun Rehabilitation Sports in the launch edition of the Ageing Asia Webinar Series – Impact of COVID-19 on the business of Ageing in Asia Pacific.
The ‘Impact of COVID-19 on the Business of Ageing’, hosted by Ageing Asia, is a 60-minute webinar series, moderated by Ageing Asia’s founder, Janice Chia, who is frequently interviewed by the media on ageing market trends. Each episode will be focusing on how the global eldercare sector is re-thinking, re-inventing and digitising products, services, business and operational models to address the needs of Asia Pacific’s rapidly ageing population.
The guest speaker for the 26 June LIVE discussion that focuses on fun rehabilitation sports is Mr Takuya Hagiwara, General Secretary from the World Yuru Sports Association. Mr Hagiwara will be sharing on some of the fun rehabilitation sports he has observed, with a demonstration on how to play Ton Ton Sumo virtually, including opportunity for audience participation.
