President’s Welcome

Tiffany Tuftee, LAc

Welcome to CSOMA’s new website!

My name is Tiffany Tuftee, and I am honored to be your current president of the California State Oriental Medical Association (CSOMA).

Whether you are new member, a long-time supporter or just learning about who we are, we have a lot of exciting new developments in the months to come. I invite you to explore our website and, if you haven’t already, join CSOMA or renew your membership!

CSOMA is a 501(c)6 not-for-profit association whose mission is to advocate and advance the profession of Acupuncture and Oriental  Medicine (AOM), with a clear focus on public policy and legislation, safeguarding our scope of practice and expansion of member benefits.

We offer an incredible value exchange for your membership dues. Ongoing advocacy work to protect our scope of practice, coding, billing and insurance expertise, clinic and office forms, patient education tools and other members-only content, along with our new and improved Find A Practitioner directory to name a few!

Perhaps most exciting of all is our new discussion forum where members like you can find and share valuable information on topics ranging from insurance billing to sharps disposal to selling a practice.

As president, my primary goal is to empower our profession with a strong, vibrant and growing community of professionals, students and supporters of AOM.

Do you share this goal? I hope you do! Please show your support by inviting your colleagues to join, and to participate in CSOMA functions, events, committee activities and advocacy work. Together, we truly can make a difference!

I am grateful for our leadership, the volunteers that support our association,  and of course, to you our members! It is a special privilege to be a part of this association.

Yours in practice,

Tiffany Tuftee, LAc, MSTCM
