People to People Announces Fall 2005
Acupuncture Program in the People's Republic of China
People to People Ambassador Programs is coordinating a delegation of professionals specializing in acupuncture who will travel to China November 27 - December 9, 2005. Delegates will visit clinics, institutions and hospitals, and meet with medical acupuncture professionals in the host country. The exchange will include extensive discussions on the historical and present role of acupuncture as it pertains to current issues in China's healthcare system.
The Acupuncture Delegation is being led by Michael W. Coomes, MD, President of the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture and Director of Immunization and Travel Medicine at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Coomes is looking forward to sharing this opportunity for professional and personal growth with colleagues from the United States and China.
"I encourage medical acupuncture professionals to pursue this rare and exciting opportunity," he said. "Delegates can play a role in defining the themes for discussion, and will be able to both share and gain insights through the exchange."
Delegates will visit three primary areas - Beijing, Guilin, and Shanghai - experiencing China's culture and heritage along the way.
Ambassador Programs has been conducting educational programs for professionals in some of the world's most fascinating destinations for more than 40 years. The delegations allow professionals to exchange information with their overseas counterparts, while forging the bonds of international friendship.
