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. This is the perfect answer. Thank you for directing in a way that is honest and clearly makes the statement that there are so many other issues to focus on right now. (like the state of the profession and the cost of acupuncture). And very importantly,I also feel that this answer respects that not every member of POCA may have the exact same view on this particular matter, and this is ok, it doesn’t change the common mission that what we are working towards together.
