Pacific College-New York Raises Funds for Hurricane Katrina Relief
By Editorial Staff
As part of the nationwide effort to provide relief to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, Pacific College of Oriental Medicine's New York campus has initiated a fundraising campaign to assist Acupuncturists Without Borders to help facilitate the healing process among those affected by the hurricane.
Members of Acupuncturists Without Borders, a grassroots organization, will soon begin traveling to Houston, Texas, and nearby areas where evacuees are being housed, to provide free acupuncture treatments.
The NADA style of auricular acupuncture will be used, with treatment provided in a community setting, and with each patient receiving treatment for between 30 and 60 minutes.
In addition to reaching out to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, treatments will also be made available to all service workers in the area, including police, search-and-rescue volunteers, Red Cross volunteers, and medical personnel.
Throughout the month of September, PCOM's clinic, the Pacific College Acupuncture Center, will be accepting donations in support of the program. For more information on the relief efforts, or to make a donation, please contact Pacific College at (800) 729-3468.
