Dr. Paul Terasaki established the Nibei Foundation, a California non-profit organization, in 1998. His vision included providing various forms of support to medical researchers and physicians coming from Japan to engage in medical activities at United States institutions. Since May, 2002, the researchers, physicians, their families, and local friends have attended a variety of cultural, informative classes directed by Japanese Americans. The Foundation has become a hub of cultural exchanges for people with deep, fond roots in America and Japan.
