Japan - What is going on in Integrative Oncology?

Welcome to our newly updated (and stil in the process) section on Japan. It is July 2010 and Ann Fonfa, founder and president (volunteer) of the Annie Appleseed Project was invited to speak at several events in Tokyo.

Sponsored by Sun Medica (Japan) and Mushroom Wisdom (USA), the first event was a meeting for patients and advocates on July 16. A trip summary is shown below.

There will be links to summaries of the three separate events plus photos. We will also create links to clinics and organizations.

Studies that are done in Japan will be placed here as well.
