Proud Member of POCA!

July 15th, 2010 by admin

Barefoot Doctor is proud to be a member of the Peoples’ Organization of Community Acupuncture (POCA)!

POCA is a multistakeholder cooperative and our goal is to make acupuncture available and accessible to as many people as possible and to support those providing acupuncture to create stable and sustainable businesses and jobs.  Community Acupuncture is a social business model.  As social businesses we place value on contributing to others and we rely on the support of our patients and community members and recognize you all as an integral part of making our mission possible!  We all have a stake in having other family and friends and co-members of society having access to a remarkable and inexpensive form of medicine.  Already with over 200 member clinics nationwide it has become easier to recommend these family and friends to like minded acupuncture practices- but there are still many towns and cities in great need of affordable acupuncture.

Please visit POCA’s website, read the public blogs, and gain a deeper understanding of what we at Barefoot Doctor and other POCA clinics are all about!

We encourage and need all types of member support; whether you’re an acupuncturist, clinic, organization, or awesome patient member!  To see what types of volunteer opportunities are available and how membership benefits you, click HERE!  Thank you for being a part of our movement!
