Conference Keynote: Breaking the Ceiling

The theme for this conference is “Breaking Barriers”. You know, there are so many barriers to break in acupuncture that it was really hard to choose which ones to talk about for this speech. But since I’ve spent so much time talking about classism as a barrier, I thought it might be fun to shift gears a little and talk about numbers.

  1. Thanks for making this video, you guys! In addition to all your articulate explanations of why join POCA, I think it’s cool for people to get a sense of what POCA meetings are like. If you wonder where all the stuff that POCA does originates — an awful lot of it comes from hardworking volunteers in Google Chat meetings. Also, I’m impressed that you all restrained yourselves from using the Google function that lets you put on glasses and moustaches and/or devil horns during the chat. Most of the POCA meetings I’ve been to involved devil horns at some point.
