Hokkaido University Hospital will open the Personal Health Center (PHC) in FY 2023 to provide preventive medicine adopting genetic screening.

The objective of establishing this center is to learn the risk of diseases such as dementia, hypertension, and diabetes through genetic screening, and to improve lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise to prevent diseases on one’s own.


In addition, Hokkaido University Hospital is planning the opening projects for the establishment of PHC.

The first project is “*MIND Diet” co-developed by “Personal Health Center (PHC) x Hokkaido University Hospital Nutritional Management Department x Restaurant Ari.”

From April 5 to 11, they will be selling MIND Diet, such as lunch boxes and focaccia, at Kita Kitchen in the Marui Imai Sapporo Flagship Store.
