Acupuncture and Global Health

In this weekend course, taught by SIEAM faculty, Jen Resnick, a practitioner with years of field experience working in medically-underserved communities around the world, students will learn about the use of acupuncture in a global health setting. The students will gain knowledge about how to engage with these communities and about the benefit that can be provided by strategic partnerships to improve the health of the local population. Students will also receive training on the basic logistical plans needed to start this type of project.  Participants will

  • Gain diagnostic and clinical training on how to treat trauma when in remote locations 
  • Learn methods of delivery of EAM care in the field
  • Understand the concept of social determinants of health and how to interact with these conditions as a clinician
  • Learn how to apply concepts of global health clinically for working in the US with diverse populations such as immigrants, Native American, urban and rural communities, and non-dominant cultures in the US. 
  • Learn skills and tools needed for creative and healthy partnership with local communities.

Note:  This course fulfills the Global Health requirement for SIEAM alumni returning to the Doctoral Completion track.
