Dear friends, patients, colleagues and acupuncture advocates,
If you or someone you know has received acupuncture or understands the benefits of acupuncture please join me in support of including acupuncture as an "Essential Health Benefit" for Americans.
To be included in the Essential Health Benefits, the health care service must be effective, safe, affordable, and easy to be incorporated into our current medical system without wasting too many resources, especially during this economic situation. Acupuncture is the perfect therapeutic modality to meet all of these demands. Your support is needed.
