We are happy to announce that Gov. Polis has issued the proclamation for October 24 to be Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Day. It’s a small step but we are happy to move forward with non-harmful language and in a more inclusive way to represent the many diverse paths of the medicine we practice.
Please visit the AHM Day website to see more state proclamations and to see how you can get involved. You still have all week to share with your patients!
