AOM Day - October 24th                   

More than 3.1 million adults visited an acupuncturist in 2007, a figure that has risen sharply over the past decade. In 1997 there were 27 visits to an acupuncturist per 1,000 adults compared to 79.2 visits in 2007. To remain at the forefront of truly patient-centered integrative medical care, outreach is an important tool for building awareness about acupuncture’s safety and benefits.

The links below include a toolkit developed by the Council of State Associations (CSA) Public Education Committee,

They are designed to make your AOM Day event a guided and effective opportunity for building awareness of AOM through creating referral networks in your community and identifying allies in health and wellness promotion.
