NCCAOM PDA Provider #166669

The PDA Department would like to congratulate NCCAOM Board-Certified Acupuncturist and PDA Provider, Gregory Sperber, as the featured Provider for the Spring 2022 issue of the PDA Newsletter. Gregory’s background in molecular biology ultimately fueled his passion for Acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Although Gregory was heavily involved in schools and educating students, his curiosity always led him back to the field of herbs. Ultimately, Gregory made the decision to become an NCCAOM PDA Provider in September 2016 and now he offers courses on Chinese herbs via the Integrative Medicine Council.

New Advertising Opportunities

The PDA staff is excited to announce three upcoming PDA Course advertising opportunities! Starting in June, PDA Providers can now advertise their course(s) in the NCCAOM® PDA Social Media, NCCAOM® PDA Diplomate Newsletter and NCCAOM® PDA Flyer Distribution.

Social Media allows Providers to amplify the audience for practitioners, creating a more enhanced exposure of courses to a targeted demographic.  Posts will be automatically boosted throughout different platforms. Boosting posts optimize the exposure to specific audiences within the social media algorithms. A portion of the fee goes to the platforms’ algorithmic features.


  • The NCCAOM social media channels include Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
  • The application fee is $400 per course for all three social media platforms, for a period of one week.
  • The Provider has the option to include their picture and/or logo in the social media post.
