Feedback:

-I could learn all about Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima efficiently in the short period and came to understand the pain of the survivors. I felt that people in Hiroshima devote themselves to their task for the sake of the survivors beyond the call of duty.

-I was impressed by the deeper lectures by Dr. Kamada who published  books as well as other lecturers in related organizations.

-Based on the knowledge I gained in this training, as a member of Radiation emergency medical team, I would like to discuss how we prepare and respond to the possible radiation emergency in our area with other members.
