UNIMAS is pleased to share the news of Mohd Rasheedan, a staff member from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, specifically from the Department of Nursing, who recently achieved recognition at the Sakura Science Exchange Student Programme in Japan. Rasheedan won the Best Presenter Award for his presentation "From Kuching to Hyogo: A Memoir of Japan.”

Held from February 17th to 22nd, 2024, and sponsored by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), the program aimed to encourage academic and cultural exchanges between Malaysia and Japan. Rasheedan, also a PhD student at the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), joined nine other students from IIUM for this initiative. The program was a joint effort with the College of Nursing and Art Science at the University of Hyogo, Japan, focusing on broadening participants' knowledge and skills through diverse experiences.

Rasheedan's time in Japan was filled with activities that included cultural exchanges, such as sushi making and origami, and provided a look into the Hina Matsuri festival. Highlights included a workshop on disaster nursing and shelter management, a visit to the Disaster Museum to learn about the Great Hanshin Earthquake, and tours of the Red Cross Hospital in Kobe and various cultural landmarks.

These experiences not only enriched Rasheedan's understanding but also prepared him and his fellow participants to bring back valuable knowledge to Malaysia. UNIMAS is proud of Mohd Rasheedan's accomplishment and looks forward to his continued contributions to our community and beyond.
