The NIAMS is involved in a range of activities that provide information to communities and professional and voluntary organizations about the NIAMS and how we can support their ongoing health efforts.
Community Outreach Initiative
The Community Outreach Initiative connects health care providers and community organizers with free resources about bones, joints, muscles, and skin for outreach efforts and community events.
NIAMS attends health fairs and exhibits throughout the year to provide information about the NIAMS, often exhibiting at meetings of professional and voluntary organizations, including those that make up the NIAMS Coalition.
NIAMS “Adopt-a-School” Partnerships
The NIAMS works with students, teachers, and school administrators at select schools to encourage students’ interest in pursuing a career in biomedical research.
The NIAMS Coalition is an independent consortium of more than 90 professional and voluntary organizations that are devoted to raising awareness of NIAMS research.
NIAMS Intramural Research Summer Student Program
Students in high school, undergraduate, graduate and medical students have the opportunity to work in one of the NIAMS labs to learn research skills, attend lectures and symposia, and gain experience presenting.
