Happy Holidays from CSOMA!

Letter from the President, Dr. Nell Smircina, LAc

Happy Holiday Greetings from CSOMA!

We hope this finds you well in the last weeks of 2021.

I’m excited to share a few news items for you to look forward to in the new year:

  • The Journal of Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine (JAIM) is hitting mailboxes shortly! You should receive your copy soon. Our next issue will cover integrative oncology – stay tuned!
  • World Chinese Medicine Forum’s Top Infertility Experts from China series is offering a 50% discount to CSOMA members. Includes 5 sessions, 10 PDAs/CEUs. Sign up at worldchinesemedicineforum.org and use your member discount code. First session is Jan. 12.
  • CSOMA is spearheading an aggressive legislative agenda that expands L.Ac. scope of practice (point injection & laser therapies), and improves access to care (Medicare, VA, insurance).

We look forward to your continued membership with CSOMA, and we wish you a very happy New Year!

Warm Regards,
Dr. Nell Smircina, LAc
CSOMA President
