American Airlines, Japan Society, Rotary Club, and US-Japan Foundation join Japanese Medical Society of America and 9/11 Tribute Center again for the Second Outreach Mission to Japan
In August, American Airlines will fly a second team to Japan for an outreach mission. Members from the 9.11 community (family members, survivors, rescue and recovery workers, residents of the WTC neighborhood), JMSA, Mount Sinai Global Health, and Rotary will share their personal stories of transformation and give hope to survivors of the 3.11 earthquake disaster in Tohoku, Japan, starting with school children and teachers.
We are pleased to announce that JMSA will be celebrating its 41st Annual Dinner on Saturday, May 11, 2013.
In addition to celebrating the scholarship recipients, we would like to raise funding for the JMSA so that we may continue our programs. Please review the Annual Dinner announcement and consider supporting our annual dinner as a guest and/or by supporting a table.

Our group led eight members of the 9.11 Tribute Center and 9.11 Family Association, two members of the Englewood Rotary, and the Director of Mount Sinai Global Mental Health, Dr. Craig Katz and his 10 year old daughter, Maya.
Dear JMSA members and friends,
The JMSA would like to express our gratitude for your generous donations to the JMSA Japan Relief Fund. Thanks to your kind support, we have raised $170,000 to benefit rebuilding efforts in northern Japan. JMSA is sending 100% of donations to Kokoro no Care (“care for the feelings”), a community mental health treatment program led by Professor Niwa of the Department of Neuropsychiatry at Fukushima Medical University (FMU). The goal of Kokoro no Care is to create multidisciplinary satellite mental health care units to serve towns where existing clinics have been closed due to the disaster. We are very impressed with this program and believe that it will make a meaningful, long-term impact in areas affected by the earthquake.
