The 4th Phoenix Leader Education Program seminar 2015

In the 4th Phoenix Leader Education Program (PLEP) seminar 2015, Dr. Hiroo Dohi (Director, Japanese Red Cross Society), gave a lecture on July 13th entitled “International cooperation and support concerning radiation exposure medicine.” The PELP seminars are held regularly with the purpose of disseminating information about the activities of our program by providing open classes and lectures to Hiroshima University students, faculty and staff.

More than 20 people, including both undergraduate and PLEP graduate students, attended the seminar and contributed to a lively learning environment.

In his lecture, Dr. Dohi talked about the effects of radiation on the human body and discussed past radiation accidents that have happened both inside and outside of Japan. He also mentioned the activities of the Hiroshima International Council for Health Care of the Radiation-exposed (HICARE) which acts as an international medical cooperation system for radiation disasters.

The participating students stated that it was a good opportunity to learn about the activities of HICARE and to consider their own future careers. It was a very useful seminar for everyone.
