Earlier this month we were contacted by a reporter from the O magazine looking for information on innovative Acupuncturists volunteering their time and helping at-risk people that would otherwise not have access to our care. We reached out to our members and to Acupuncturists on Facebook, and the response was overwhelming! So many of you are contributing countless hours and your time/treasure/and talents toward helping others. I think that is one of the aspects of our profession that is so unique and amazing--our compassion and willingness to help others. Not that other professions do not do this, but over and over again you will meet acupuncturists giving of themselves without any expectation of return or glory. Due to this, I thought we could take some time to highlight the individuals that were brought to our attention (keep in mind, there are many, many more). If you know of someone that should be on this list that has a unique volunteering project, please contact us.
**If you would like more information or would like to volunteer and are looking for connections, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org**
