5th International Expert Symposium in Fukushima will be held on September 26, 27

Thirty years have passed since the Chernobyl nuclear accident, and five years since the Fukushima nuclear accident.  Building on what we have discussed at previous International Expert Symposiums, this time our theme is, “Chernobyl+30, Fukushima+5: Lessons and Solutions for Fukushima’s Thyroid Question.” At this symposium, we will focus on thyroid cancer issues, deepen everyone’s understanding of the thyroid gland from the standpoint of evidence-based medicine (EBM), and discuss recent situational improvements in Fukushima, as well as the latest thinking about long-term health surveillance in the prefecture.

The schedule of the symposium is as follows:

Date: September 26-27 (Mon-Tue), 2016
Venue: The Celecton Fukushima

Organizer: Nippon Foundation
Co-organizers: Fukushima Medical University, Nagasaki University, Sasakawa Memorial Health Foundation

More details will be announced here around the middle of June.
