The Tohoku University Tohoku Medical Megabank Organization (ToMMo) operates programs designed to contribute to the health of residents, including those in areas hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
The following activities are carried out along with the programs:
We visit various areas in Miyagi Prefecture to explain an overview of the programs.
Feedback from these sessions will be used to improve existing projects.
August 22nd, 2012, we visited the Kasetsu Jutaku Sewaninkai (Temporary Housing Friendship Circle) in Shichigahama.
Through September to October in 2012, a survey was taken at the community's metabolic syndrome health examination center in Yamamoto-cho, Watari-gun, Miyagi Prefecture. The questionnaire also included questions concerning the residents' wishes and expectations of the programs to be held.
Details about the programs are informed through the media.
Two series of radio program were broadcast on DateFM (77.1MHz Sendai) and FM IWANUMA (77.9MHz Iwanuma).
We visit municipalities in Miyagi Prefecture to ask for their cooperation.
In September 2012, a signing ceremony for the Miyagi Prefecture-Tohoku University cooperation agreement of the Tohoku Medical Megabank Project was held. During the event, letters of agreement were exchanged for project cooperation within Miyagi Prefecture.
We also engage in networking opportunities with medical practitioners and disaster relief workers all across the region.
