PIHMA Hires New Academic Dean

The Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture has hired Dr. Amy Kahn to serve as its academic dean and diversity director.

The appointment of Dr. Kahn adds a person to the institute's ranks with a wealth of business experience who also has worked in the field of education for more than a decade.

Dr. Kahn received her doctorate in human and organization systems from Fielding Graduate University, and her master's degree in international management from the American Graduate School of International Management. She has been published or featured in several prominent magazines and newspapers, including Arizona Woman Magazine, Black Enterprise Magazine, and the Arizona Republic. In addition to her duties at PIHMA, she represents the institute on the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine's Special Needs Committee.

Florida Newscaster Credits Pregnancy, Birth of Child to Acupuncture

More than anything, Jacquie Sosa, a television news anchor in Orlando, Fla., wanted to be a mother. For more than five years, she and her husband attempted to conceive a child, turning first to artificial insemination and fertility drugs, then to fertility specialists, and then finally to in vitro fertilization. So intent were the Sosas on having a child that they eventually sold their house to help pay for fertility treatments.

"They could not find anything wrong with me," Sosa said. "It was physically and financially draining."

After numerous failed attempts, the Sosas turned to Heidi Regier, an acupuncturist in Winter Park who had been successful in treating infertility among women in central Florida. Jacquie Sosa received a series of treatments designed to regulate menstrual flow, relieve tension and correct energetic imbalances. After two sessions with Reiger, Sosa learned that she had become pregnant; a few months afterward, she gave birth to healthy baby girl.

"I never needed the in vitro," Sosa said. "The acupuncture is all I needed." Reiger added that she was "hugely proud and honored" to have played a part in Sosa's pregnancy and childbirth.
