Feed Back:

-After 73 years have passed since A-bomb, I was amazed by the accumulated results of medical care for A-bomb survivors and research on radiation related diseases during the period. I think the results can greatly benefit mankind.


-I am impressed by the lecture on the disaster response activities by Prof. Hirohashi at Advanced Emergency and Critical Care Center. The system in ICU is also nice.


-In regard to testimonies of A-bomb survivors, just like students all over Japan as well as in Hiroshima come over to the survivors for peace studying, we may as well have such the program in Korea.


-After coming back home, I will share with my colleagues the information on the system and the finance resources when A-bomb survivors are accepted and receive medical treatment in Korea. I will also learn well about the respond and the procedures to positive radiation exposures such as nuclear issues and accidents in both usual life and medical sites.


-As a nurse, it would be better for me to take more facility tours in hospitals than similar lectures.


-The lecture given by Prof. Hirohashi at Hiroshima University was impressive. His energetic stance on giving lecture in a positive manner moved me.

It was nice to have face-to-face meeting with A-bomb survivors at nursing home. I was impressed by the scenery that A-bomb survivors live at ease in a good environment
