Dr. Ted Lazo, a representative of OECD/NEA’s Committee on Radiation Protection and Public Health (CRPPH), attended FMU’s three-day conference and had a subsequent discussion with FMU faculty members, Vice President/Prof. Yamashita, Prof. Niwa, Prof. Yasumura, Prof. Ohtsuru, Prof. Yabe, and Prof. Nollet. The meeting was held at the Department of International Cooperation on 27 Feb, and joined by Dr. Vladimir Saenko of Nagasaki University.
Dr. Lazo showed great interest in the Fukushima Health Management Survey, and proposed to provide his Japanese counterparts with necessary information that would assist with their efforts. Both sides agreed to continue exchange meetings on development and implementation of effective basic survey, sharing experience and approaches to academically solid and sustainable studies, and communicating closely study objectives, progress and results within the public and political spheres.
After the meeting, Dr. Lazo and Dr. Saenko proceeded with Prof. Yasumura and Prof. Nollet to tour the Health Management Survey facilities in FMU Sakaemachi Office, and then to the Survey offices in FMU Hikarigaoka campus.
