HICARE's training program was very good in many aspects.
One of them is to awake people to concerning about the risk of a new nuclear conflict in our planet. Another aspect was to teach us the effect of the radiation in the human body and its consequences.
Another point is the cooperation to support these affected people not only in Japan, but in countries that has Japanese immigrants.
Especially to me, this training program was very important not only by these aspects, but it was a privilege to experience updated in ENT, and was a great opportunity to be in contact to my parents' culture.
