Temp acupuncturist and volunteers needed!

4 Aug

Do you know an acupuncturist in the region who is looking for work, or has always wanted to move back to their hometown of Las Cruces and practice?  Temporary coverage for Crossroads’ clinic will be needed in September and October, could lead to employment at Crossroads Community Acupuncture.  We plan to hire acupuncturists by the Winter 2012/2013.

We also are looking for volunteers currently for media outreach, photography, reception work, community organizing, fundraising and non profit administration.  Could lead to employment. This is a great chance to be a part of our work in the border region. Contact crossroadscommunityacupuncture@gmail.com for more information.

Overview: 

Crossroads Community Acupuncture, LLC has one growing POCA clinic located in downtown Las Cruces, New Mexico, and is a clinic member for an international acupuncture cooperative.  We are the first community acupuncture clinic and in the entire El Paso and Southern New Mexico region and have provided 1000 treatments since we opened in Spring 2012.  Our clients travel as far away as Alamogordo, NM, El Paso, Texas as well as the border colonias of Chaparral and Anthony and Northern Mexico to receive treatments at Crossroads.  We are the only community acupuncture clinic within 4 hours of Las Cruces.  More on our clinic: crossroadsacupuncture.com

We are seeking bilingual English/Spanish acupuncturists and social workers  with experience in high volume community clinics (i.e. NADA, community acupuncture, high volume private acupuncture, public health) to be a part of our team. We are also seeking volunteers to assist with outreach, reception work, and fundraising.  Crossroads collaborates with acupuncturists, behavioral health specialists and community based organizations from Canada, the US and Mexico towards a common mission of making acupuncture accessible to everyone in the borderlands.  In addition to providing acupuncture treatments, we offer educational workshops, capacity building programs, technical support and outcomes evaluation for cross-trained allied health workers and community clinics providing acu care within underserved areas in the border region. Currently we are conducting a qualitative study on our clinics.  Acupuncturists with experience in research, mental health, and micro enterprise and community development are encouraged to inquire about forthcoming volunteer and employment opportunities.

This is a great opportunity for acupuncturists wanting to work in a busy clinic, learn how to make simple acupuncture techniques accessible to the masses, and build community among our neighbors in the borderlands.
