T.C.M. practitioners are trained to compose and deliver sophisticated herbal formulas that intersect traditional theory, modern medicine, and individual patients unique characteristics. While this represents many ideals, it can present many barriers to access and fulfillment of therapeutic treatment plans due to cost, availability, time spent in preparation, or familiarity. Most individuals have access to and are familiar with a modest repertoire of culinary herbs for flavoring their food. This class aims to support the T.C.M. practitioner in having a thorough Materia medica of fresh and dried culinary herbs from around the world to be able to recommend to patients for use in common health conditions.

In light of the recent social political events, acupuncturists have found themselves in need of a more complete history of acupuncture in the United States. This class will cover the history of African American Activists that helped to popularize Acupuncture in the 1970s, how this became the foundation for POCA, and why the subsequent erasure of that history has contributed to the racial health disparities gap instead of closing it as was intended. This class will also cover historical concepts as social determinants of health so that participants will have a better understanding of how racial battle fatigue presents today and how TCM can help address this ongoing public health crisis.
