Acupuncturists Without Borders meets MRC

In recent months, our MRC ambassador and Healing Opportunities board member, Renee Barsa L.Ac. connected two national disaster relief organizations- Acupuncturists Without Borders (AWB) and Medical Reserve Corps (MRC). Both organizations are committed to providing the best medical services in the case of disaster and public emergency situations, yet only the Santa Barbara branch of MRC had Acupuncturists participating on their team. This means that of the 1,000 MRC groups of Medical Professionals around the U.S., only 1 would call on an Acupuncture unit to respond in the case of a disaster. That is, until Ms. Barsa got the heads of the two groups talking, successfully bridging a huge gap in the future of Acupuncture in America.

The impacts of this partnership are long reaching, as dedicated Acupuncturists begin work alongside Western medicine practitioners, developing trust and partnership between Eastern and Western Medicine.

Well done Renee!
