The Acupuncture Association of Colorado has two main focuses
The first is to protect our right to practice Chinese Medicine in the state of Colorado
Over the years there has been legislation presented that has been deemed threatening to our profession’s existence. Because we retain a professional lobbyist, we are able to stay informed when such legislation arises and then take appropriate action. As a member of the AAC, you can be kept up to date regarding the political changes relating to acupuncture and have a voice in the legislative process. Half of your membership dues are dedicated to our legislative fund.
Our second focus is to educate the public
With “alternative” and complementary medicines becoming more popular, our goal is to ensure that the public obtains accurate information about Acupuncture and Traditional East Asian Medicine.
Our public relations committee facilitates the publication of factual information to our communities via social media, newspaper, television, radio and magazines. Each year, we represent the profession and our members at events such as Denver’s Dragon Boat Festival and 9Health Fairs across the state. This service benefits the general public through education about the array of health issues Acupuncture and Traditional East Asian Medicine can address.
