Feedback:

-I will try to transfer what I learned in this course to my colleagues and my students by giving seminars.

Also, I’ll try to arrange a medical assistance team specialized in nuclear accident in Iranian Red Crescent Society and transfer what I saw in the Japanese hospitals to Ministry of Healthcare, Iran for nuclear emergency preparedness.

 

-I’d also like to say how enjoyable this whole experience was for me, aside the opportunity to finally have a chance to visit the country my ancestors were from. The visits to museums and historical sites were crucial for the full understanding of the course and the problem of radiation.

 

-I realize that there are many people working hard to take care of A-bomb survivors and following them up. Others are engaged in providing appropriate assistance in case of radiation exposure. And many researchers continue to perform studies about radiation and its effects.

 

-Historical data of A-Bomb is very impressive as well as health profiles of “Hibakusha no kanjasan.” I will establish all these checkup routines for the patients of A- Bomb victims in Brazil at Hospital Nipo-Brasileiro - São Paulo, as I saw people in Hiroshima University put them in practice.
