THE JMSA COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM (JCOP):
JMSA COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM MISSION STATEMENT
Through the years, JMSA has become aware of local organizations which have provided much needed medically and socially related support to the Japanese American Community. Many of these programs provide valuable services to the Japanese community through information sharing and support groups, and have urgent need for funding. With this knowledge, JMSA established the Community Outreach Program (JCOP) in 2007 in order to support medically related Japanese programs through grants .
The JMSA Community Outreach Program (JCOP) strives to become a liaison between community programs and corporations seeking to sponsor and aid such programs.
アメリカ各地には、地域に根付いた活動を展開する、日系の医療関連非営利団体（NPO）がたくさんあります。米国日本人医師会（JMSA）は、ここ数 年彼らの活動に注目してきました。これらのNPOは、地元の日系コミュニティーに対して、必要な医療情報を日本語で提供するだけでなく、独自のプログラム や企画・イベントなどを通して、実に様々な医療関連サービスを提供しています。しかし、いずれの団体もその活動資金不足は深刻で、差し迫った問題となって いるのが現状です。そこでJMSAは、助成金を通じて彼らの活動を支援しようと、2007年「JMSA日系コミュニティー・アウトリーチ・プログラム （JCOP）」を立ち上げました。地元の日系医療関連NPOと、支援意欲を持つ企業とをつなぐ橋として、このプログラ ムを発展させていく所存でおります。

The Hideyo Noguchi Memorial Society will hold a ceremony on May 21st, 2014 at The Woodlawn Cemetery in Bronx, New York to honor the life and legacy of the Japanese scientist. Born in Inawarshiro, Fukushima, in 1876, Noguchi achieved success as a scientist even though he was raised in a small rural village and was handicapped by a fire. His talent was recognized by the Rockefeller Institute which provided him with the opportunity to conduct research where he focused on a cure for yellow fever. On May 21, 1928 Dr. Noguchi succumbed to the disease he fought tirelessly to cure while working in Africa.
The event will be held on May 21, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. at The Woodlawn Cemetery, Bronx, NY.
