Home > About JAMSNET (English)

Japanese Medical Support Network (JAMSNET) was initiated through a 2005 conversation between Dr. Koichi Nakamoto, a medical attache at the Japanese Consulate in New York, and Dr. Shunichi Homma, Professor of Medicine at Columbia University, then the President of Japanese Medical Society of America (JMSA). They agreed that it will be most beneficial if the groups supporting Japanese health in New York area were to exchange information and to coordinate activities. 22 groups joined this network with full support from the Consulate. The first meeting was held in January 2006. This network now has an affiliate in Tokyo (JAMSNET Tokyo), and continues to support a variety of activities for the Japanese community in both the US and Japan.
