-As a health policy researcher, the information regarding the social/economic resources and services for the a-bomb survivors was very interesting. I was impressed by the wrap-around services provided for them. I learned a lot of new information I did not know previously.


-I will share my learned experience and knowledge for caring for A-bomb survivors to many families undergoing difficulties due to complex medical conditions. The resiliency shown by hibakusha is impressive and inspiring to humanity. I will make presentations to medical staff and families.


-It was really invaluable for me to be able to interact with and receive lectures from the leading researchers and research institutions on the subject of the care for the radiation exposed.

It gave me a much deeper understanding and a context for the subject matter. Perhaps most importantly, it really added a human touch to the subject that I had only previously studied in a textbook.
