Goat-tee!-Support your acupuncture profession.
The acupuncture profession needs some unity, creativity and visibility in the new year!
2015 is the year of the wooden goat. This brings the second period of Wood energy into the Great Qi Flow of our lives. Wood Qi rules the conduit between fire and water. This means it is an awesome time to pursue creative endeavors and independent projects. Support growth of the acupuncture profession in 2015 by purchasing a goat-tee.
All proceeds are collected by the Oregon Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and will support professional activities and campaigns at the state and national level. One of these is the Council of State Associations, which provides support to ASDC through its many activities.
DC Licensing update:
The D.C. Board of Medicine has sent notice to all licensees that you may renew your license as of October 1st. You will see that there are 3 new questions on the form (#15,16, and 17). Question #15 asks if you have met the CE (continuing education) and certification requirements for your profession. Please note that we find no mention of continuing education requirements nor ongoing certification requirements for acupuncturists in the D.C. regulations. We have asked the Board of Medicine for clarification on this since no new regulations have been legalized to date. The Board says to fill in the questions to the best of your understanding. We will update this post as soon as we have more information.
