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.

2017 JMSA Summer Party

Written by JMSA on . Posted in Announcements

On August 13th, JMSA held its annual summer party at Guzan Japanese Restaurant in the Upper East Side. As always, this fun mid-year event was a great opportunity to talk, network, and catch up over delicious sushi and drinks. Current JMSA members were joined by many new faces, including researchers, residents, medical students, and even visitors from Japan. Participants commonly talked about the differences in medical care and education between Japan and USA, transitioning to living and working in NY, and plans regarding their medical careers moving forward. JMSA hopes to organize many more events throughout the rest of the year, so please be on the look out for future emails.

Consul General's Commendation for Tohoku Outreach Efforts

Written by JMSA on . Posted in Announcements

On June 7th, 2017, the 9/11 Tribute Center received the Consul General’s Commendation from Ambassador Reiichiro Takahashi, the Consul General of Japan in New York, for its ongoing 9/11 to 3/11 Tohoku outreach efforts with JMSA. 


JMSA has been the core organizer of the 9/11 to 3/11 Tohoku outreach project and it has been generously supported by American Airlines, Arnhold Institute for Global Health at Mount Sinai, Japan Society, Rotary International, and the United States-Japan Foundation.


We will be leading our sixth 9/11 to 3/11 Tohoku outreach mission next month, from July 2nd to July 8th, 2017. Although it has now been more than six years since the 3/11 Japan Earthquake, an estimated 123,000 evacuees continue to suffer the consequences of this devastating event. Children and school communities, in particular, have been especially vulnerable. This year, we wish to empower these school communities by showing concrete examples of resilience and promoting self-motivation toward recovery. Please read more about our outreach mission and planned events below.
