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.
