- I saw and experienced the facilities and knowledge practically. When I go back to Korea, I will educate medical students, residents and my fellow Koreans.
   I would like to say thank you to the lecturers for their concerns and hospitality. The well-prepared lectures demonstrating real knowledge were so helpful for understanding the system and studies for A-bomb survivors.
  What I learned here will surely be useful for proceeding with my studies and educating people in Korea.

- I realized that the Atomic Bomb is a dangerous thing and people in Hiroshima are still suffering from the bombing.
  I will teach about the danger of the Atomic Bomb and concern about cancer caused by radiation.

- The HICARE Program was very significant because I could learn about what I had always wondered about (i.e. whether cancer rate on 2nd generation A-bomb survivors increases, cancer rate of 1st generation A-bomb survivors). When I go back home, I will study more about what I learned in Hiroshima and related papers, and accurately teach about the casualties and dangers of radiation exposure to my patients and colleagues. Furthermore, I will look for ways to enlighten A-bomb survivors living in Korea about receiving medical benefits.
  I was so moved by all the lecturers for their faithful and enthusiastic lectures.

- I learned a lot about the effects of radiation on the human body. I believe the knowledge I gained will be helpful, because my hospital receives many A-bomb survivors. I truly appreciated the opportunity to receive such great lectures in Hiroshima.
