The Annual AAMA Symposium was held April 13-16, 2023 at the Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel in Dallas, TX. The theme of the meeting was “Medical Acupuncture: Meeting the Challenges of an Evidence-Based World”.
The outstanding program focused on a diverse array of topics that are of interest to health care professionals engaged in, or interested in, incorporating medical acupuncture in their practice. The program included three days of morning plenary presentations, and each afternoon featured concurrent workshops on relevant topics.
A number of popular annual events returned for the meeting. These included the Founders Lecture, Poster Presentation session and plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues and exhibit companies.
The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is designing the 2023 Symposium to meet an expressed need to explore the mechanisms of acupuncture from several different perspectives and to examine current scientific research in the field of medical acupuncture. It will address topics suggested by practitioners and stress a variety of approaches to practical clinical problems. Surveys and evaluations from previous symposia indicate there is a desire for more information about acupuncture techniques that honor the rich history of Asian medicine as applied to the contemporary, Western medical practice.
