OVERVIEW:  How do community acupuncture and acudetox work as a capacity building intervention and sustainable healthcare model in the context of humanitarian aid, post-disaster and in the developing world?  How can you start and sustain a program of this type? What are your blind-spots as a clinician and teacher for that work? How can we grow as conscious community healthcare leaders at this moment to respond to the needs of the times?

Crossroads Acupuncture has been adapting the NADA model as well as the community acupuncture model over the past decade in the borderlands, in Mexico, Guatemala and Nicaragua, in a variety of settings, for different types of health problems, and among a diverse number of underserved groups. 

WHO WILL BE TEACHING: We will bring together acupuncture educators from around the world to create space for an engaged, critical, deep dive into the spirit of NADA, with the chance for participants to leave with a better grasp at how we can be ready for a post Covid-19 world where NADA is accessible to those who need it the most.   Guest Teachers include: Claudia Voyles, Lars Winblad, JP Dedam, Elizabeth Ropp, David Eisen, Andy Wegman, Jessica Hanson, Bob Storrer, Blake Gentry and Katurah Bryant.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN: These courses will bring you best practices in doing NADA, community acupuncture and moxa protocols in underserved, cross-cultural settings, teaching people with little education or background in healthcare. Together, we will discern how to be more dynamic, well-rounded organizers and healers in our little corners of the world.  You’ll get the support and mentorship you are needing as you build your program and developing yourself as a teacher, as a clinician and as an organizer.
