General Information

30th Annual Symposium

The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture is planning a Symposium designed to meet an expressed need to explore the mechanisms of acupuncture from several different perspectives, and to examine current scientific research in the field of medical acupuncture.  It will address topics suggested by practitioners and stresses many different approaches for addressing practical clinical problems. An emphasis on evidence-based scientific research is integrated with practical protocols for the serious clinician. Surveys and evaluations from previous symposia indicate that there is a desire for more information about acupuncture techniques that honor the rich history of Asian medicine as applied to the contemporary, Western medical practice.

The 30th Annual AAMA Symposium will be held April 13-15, 2018 at The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center in Kansas City, Missouri.  Symposium program Vice-Chair Freda Dreher, MD, FAAMA, Co-Chairs Laura Bowman, MD, DABMA, and David Miller, MD, LAc and several other committee members are already hard at work designing an exceptional program.

This conference will offer a multi-tiered approach for the understanding and clinical relevance of acupuncture in daily practice. It will expand our awareness of scientific research into the effects of acupuncture, and provide participants with information about different approaches for the treatment of common conditions seen in clinical practice. Clinicians will learn multi-faceted ways to tailor acupuncture treatments for their individual patients. This conference will focus on clinically relevant treatment approaches that can easily be integrated into clinical practice.
