Cultural Competency

Attendees Feedback

Thank the NCCAOM for the excellent work on these presentations. Proud to be a member of such an audacious professional organization. The last one on Aug 19th was especially courageous and timely. Look forward to receiving the certificate for the 19th when available.

Warm regards

Thank you for outstanding introductory presentations on cultural awareness and racial disparities in healthcare. In future presentations, please emphasize for my white colleagues that it’s the cultural construct of race and historical lack of access, not physical differences that create the disparities you so succinctly describe.

Thank you!!

M.B.

Afua, you have my full support for cultural diversity training for recertification and a State licensure. We have pushback in Michigan from some healthcare providers which tells me it’s especially needed.

Thank you.

B.M.

This has been fabulous, thank you very much for presenting! Being a white woman in healthcare, I have seen many surprising things, even from people of my own color. I acknowledge that I have work to do in the realm of inherent racism in my culture and life, I was raised in the South and grew up hearing all kinds of negative attitudes about people of color, which I never felt was accurate and did my best to not let their biases affect me.

Thank you!

M.B.

Thank you for these presentations and to the accomplished and impressive speakers. These are important discussions. I am pleased that they have been included in our discussions as acupuncturists.

Thank you!

M.K.

This is the best NCCAOM/ASA Town Hall that I have attended so far. The speakers are great.

Thank you.

I believe the information especially about the challenges in the ER is relevant to us. Thank you for sharing the inner works and challenges of the ER during this pandemic.

R.C.

I am happy to have this information first hand from someone in my state…even 45 mins away from me. It is important for us, as acupuncturist, to know what is happening across the integrative forums. We should not put blinders on to other healthcare areas. We need to know, so we can see where we can help.

Thank you again,

NCCAOM-ASA Position Statement on Non-Discrimination

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality,
tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

―Martin Luther King Jr.,Letter from the Birmingham Jail

We strive to create a world that is just and safe for all, with equitable laws, social opportunities, and access to healthcare that meet the needs of every human being in our global community.

Malpractice and Liability during Covid-19

Attendee’s Feedback

I am so happy to join in NCCAOM-ASA Town Hall Meeting which provided very important knowledge and information of malpractice and liability during Covid-19.

Mr. William G.F. Sullivan and Ms Marilyn Allen did perfect presentation with more details focusing safety issue during processing clinic, it’s very practicable.

Mr. Michael Taromina also did wonderful presentation focusing liability, all of practitioners should follow local government policy and meanwhile follow the science, follow the research in order to avoid law issue.

Good information!

M. S.

At any rate, the information was excellent, thought provoking and very relevant. While all speakers were excellent, Michael at the last segment was especially good regarding lease costs, refusing services, equal standards, etc.

Thank You

A. J.

I just wanted to let you know that the one tonight was excellent. All of my lingering questions were answered.

Very grateful for your leadership.
