What is "Drug News?" 

"Drug News" is a new resource offered by the JMSA to assist the layperson in managing the constantly changing landscape of pharmacology. It will provide the public with up-to-date information about common medications, including indications, contraindications, drug interactions, side effects, drug recalls, and the appearance of new drugs on the market. The goal is to help empower the patient in his or her own health care.

The JMSA Community Outreach Program (JCOP):

JCOP 2010 Application

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.

JMSA日系コミュニティー・アウトリーチ・プログラムの使命と目的

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。
