GMLG Proclamation of October 24 as AHM
Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Day is on October 24, 2021
Acupuncturists will remember this day as Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day, which is how we have been celebrating it for many years. Given the rising concerns about the use of the term Oriental, acupuncturists across the country are currently calling it Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine Day, which is very appropriate for New Mexico’s scope of practice.
Our Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham responded immediately to our request to proclaim this traditional day for us in NM.
Please feel free to print and post her proclamation and/or send it to your patients. It has been sent twice now to NM DOMs via email and Facebook. Enjoy!
