CSOMA Update: February Stakeholder Meeting

February 2nd and 4th marked a historical day for the acupuncture profession in California.

CSOMA President, Tiffany Tuftee and Board of Director Representative, Bruce Gustafson were in attendance to discuss unification of the profession. Assemblymember Evan Low and his colleagues helped organize the meeting to open the dialogue about why it is important to unite our profession in California. The takeaway message from our meeting:

To be heard on legislative initiatives that move our profession forward, we must have a clear and consistent message from the acupuncture profession as a whole.

Did you know there are roughly twenty-five acupuncture associations in California? This is unheard of among allied professional groups.

CSOMA is strongly in favor of uniting on key issues facing the profession, and taking action together. Ongoing collaboration is essential to building the strength in numbers that will make our voice heard.

We were honored to attend such an inspiring meeting from the Assemblymember. CSOMA is committed to strengthening ties with the profession as a whole to achieve common goals such as scope of practice protection, expansion, and parity amongst our allied professionals.
