1 Jul 2014 Columbia University students published about their visit to FMU and Fukushima Prefecture

Three Columbia University students came to Fukushima this June through the Nishimiya Fellows Program. As described on their home page (http://nishimiyafellowsprogram.org), the program began in 2012, funded by the Japanese Medical Support Network (JAMSnet) and organized as part of the Honjo-Japanese Medical Society of America (JMSA) scholarship program supported by JMSA. The program is named in honor of the late Ambassador Shinichi Nishimiya, Deputy Foreign Minister and former Japanese Ambassador to New York, who greatly contributed to the response efforts following Japan’s 3.11 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis.
