prefectural policy in the field of health and walfare:
to reduce and eliminate the Cerebrovascular Diseases

diseases". Since then, much progress has been made not

vessels, and rehabilitation reinforced the Institute's
existing staff. Today, as one of the country's leading

ideas between the Institute and professionals from many
