5th <17th> UOEH in partnership with MSSM (March 18, 2013)



<MoU between UOEH and MSSM has been signed>

President Kimitoshi Kohno and Ken Takahashi, Director of International Center visited Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM) in New York and joined Dr. Philip J. Landrigan, Dean for Global Health, and 5 other members of MSSM for the signing ceremony on Thursday, March 14, 2013. The opinions were exchanged for future collaboration.

MSSM has been engaged in tracking on the health of the emergency responders of the 9.11 terrorist attacks in New York. A great benefit of learning from our mutual experiences was found when they joined the international symposium, “Health of Workers Responding to A Nuclear Crisis” hosted by us in 2011.
