Dear Ed:

Dear Ms. Rodgers:

National Airport.

Dear Electronic Colleagues listed above:

Should you be interested, pls call her to attend.

(3) We are now forging ahead to establish a Global University System with
global broadband Internet which are to be financed with Global Service
Trust Fund (GSTF). Pls visit following URLs for more information;

Distance Learning (EGEDL)," August 9th - 13th, 1999, University of

(4) When you visit (3)-(d), pls click Roger Boston's web in its home page.
Then, click August 9 in the left column.

You can then click Telemedicine1 and Telemedicine2 at the top of the
right-hand side column to view video clipping of our echocardiograph
demonstration with Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia University in New
York with PictureTel via ISDN at 384 Kbps.

In this home page, pls also click "FINAL REPORT OF THE CONFERENCE."
Then go to "IV. Compilation of comments:" in PART I. Then click Shin
Takuma on October 8th. You can then find Dr. Takuma's (Presbyterian
Hospital) report of this demonstration.

(5) In PART II of this final report, you can also find drafts of pilot
project proposals by groups in Asia-Pacific, North America, Central
America, Amazonas, European and African regions.

Our counterparts at the University of Philippines/Open University (UPOU)
and at the University of Amazona are now planning to have mini-workshops
to brainstorm how to deliver distance learning from the US -- including
telemedicine demonstrations with echocardiography as we did during our
Tampere event, but this time with 3D image of human heart which can be
cut into a half to examine its inside. The echocardiograph image will
be sent to the Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia University in New York
for diagnosis. This will be broadcast around the world via ISDN line
and Internet.

Looking forward to meeting you soon,

Best, Tak

>Health: Prescriptions for the Internet." The report examines ways in which

>education, and biomedical research. Drawing on a series of site visits
>conducted by members of the study committee, the report identifies the

>health applications and outlines steps that could be taken to better ensure
>that these capabilities are implemented in future generations of the
>Internet. The report also examines the organizational and policy issues that
>will influence broader use of the Internet in health activities and outlines
>steps that could be taken to address them.
