  • Japan: Disaster – Aftermath – Hope for the Future

    April 05 2011, 01:00 - 01:00
    Location: the American Hospital of Paris 55, boulevard du Chateau, 92200 Neuilly sur Seine

    We would like to invite you to attend an informative gathering which will take place at the American Hospital of Paris

    In the wake of the recent tragic events in Japan, and in consideration of its own deep and historic ties with the Japanese community, AmCham France and the American Hospital of Paris wishes to offer a hand of friendship, sympathy, and solidarity to the Japanese people. The earthquake, the tsunami, and the resulting situation at the Fukushima nuclear plant have all given rise to much discussion worldwide. How does one deal with the severe physical and psychological consequences on the survivors and their families? What are the relative risks of radiation? Two physicians will make brief presentations dealing clearly and concisely with these medical and scientific questions.

    During the meeting, guests will have an opportunity to contribute to a special fund which will provide assistance directly to a hospital in the affected area of Japan. If you cannot attend but would still like to help, please contact the American Hospital of Paris so that they can provide you with details. 

    As a symbol of hope and confidence in the future of Japan, we will plant a Japanese cherry tree on the grounds of the American Hospital in honor of the Japanese people.
