Dr. Miyahara was a pioneer in the veterinary field, and established many veterinary organizations including the Hawaii Veterinary Medical Association, the University of Hawaii pre-veterinary student program, and Human-Animal Bond programs in both Hawaii and Japan. He served as Vice President of the American Veterinary Medical Association, re-vitalizing the position by directly connecting with each veterinary school campus and passing on his vision of a strong, united veterinary profession.
We are grateful for his mentorship and countless contributions to our profession both locally and internationally.

The HVMA site has been revamped with your needs in mind! New features include information for veterinarians moving to Hawaii, resources for technicians and assistants, and expanded information for pet owners. We hope to add job announcements and classifieds in the near future.
This site is for you, and we want your feedback on what you would like to see here. Please email email@example.com to make suggestions. Even better, volunteer to help make your HVMA stronger:
- We need content authors to help keep our members up to date on news events, legislative updates, pet product recalls, and more.
