Educating our patients and communities about the benefits and advantages of integrative health care is one of Free Range Health's top priorities. Whether it is answering a patient's question during a treatment session, meeting with donors to discuss how their generosity is having an impact, or giving a lecture to a community group, we value the opportunities to share our knowledge and experience.
As far as acupuncture has come over the past 30 years, there is still a long way to go before the majority of people feel comfortable seeking out East Asian medicine providers. In addition, many conventional Western medicine providers continue to have questions about the safety and well being of their patients who seek these services. If we are to achieve our mission and help to create a new model of health care access and delivery, we must work to drive the conversation to a more informed and accepting place.
Every month quality research showing the effectiveness of East Asian medicine is being published in respected journals. We are working to begin spotlighting that research and presenting it in a way that is easy for everyone to understand. In addition, we are exploring ways to answer questions for a larger audience and introduce the Free Range Health community to some of the people working to change the health of our population.
Your support helps us to have the resources to achieve these goals in meaningful ways.
