8:00 pm EDT, 7:00 pm CDT, 5:00 pm PDT


The AAMA has created a presentation that AAMA members can use to present as an introduction to medical acupuncture for health care professionals. It provides information about mechanisms of action, treatable conditions, adverse effects, and reasons to consider acupuncture treatments for patients. This NEW AAMA member resource is a valuable tool for you to use and share with your colleagues and other health care professionals.

To demonstrate how this presentation resource can be used, attend this FREE webinar for AAMA members on this material. There will be Q&A after the presentation.

Note: These will be accessible after the presentation. This NEW member resource includes a PDF of the presentation slides for you use, the narrative that goes along with the presentation slides and a file of references for the presentation.


What are the important elements in grand rounds or in a presentation about acupuncture? Drs. Elkiss and Pittman have created a thorough presentation to help you bring your acupuncture knowledge to your colleagues. The goal of this webcast is to help you as an AAMA member to be able to give effective and accurate medical acupuncture presentations to other physicians. There will be time for questions and discussion after the webcast as well.
