Serving the American Academy of Medical
CD-ROM packages available
you have a talk about acupuncture coming up? Have you been delaying
offering to talk to your hospital staff about medical acupuncture because
you don’t have time to put a presentation together? Then you should
know that AAMA’s “packaged” acupuncture talk is now available.
The long-awaited talk, “Medical Acupuncture:
The Best of Both Worlds,” is now ready. This is a basic introduction
to medical acupuncture for AAMA members to use for a variety of audiences,
from a public talk to grand rounds for your departments; from 50-90
minutes to segmental use for a two-day workshop. This is based on AAMA
President Dr. Bryan Frank’s time-proven presentations.
Two formats are available:
Slide presentations ($50). A set of 68 slides and an audience handout,
and both a paper and outline for the speaker.
A CD-ROM disk in Power Point format ($25).
same materials noted above are all contained on a CD with directions
included on how to access the handouts, etc. The CD is readable by both
PC and Macintosh computers. You will need the following to use the CD-ROM
disk for a Power Point presentation:
A CD player in a laptop or the CD program loaded into the hard drive.
Power Point software program.
A multimedia projector with a video expansion cable. (These are often
available from a hospital A/V department or library, or can be rented—usually
for $400–$500 from a hotel where you will be speaking usually paid
by the organization sponsoring the conference.).
PC computer users may need a Proxima or Dukane program.
PC users may need a Pack N Go program to set up the slides on the
A slide screen.
should check with the locations where you are likely to speak to see
if they are experienced with Power Point presentations and have the
above equipment before you order. If in doubt, it is probably safer
to order the set of slides.
Be creative with this! You can scan in pictures
or add slides from your last trip to China or additional points that
you want to make for a specific audience.
Wendy Page-Echols, DO, has found it effective
to show the AAMA video before the slide presentation to introduce the
talk and then get into the history of acupuncture mechanisms, clinical
evidence and medical indications with the slides.
Future versions will have updated clinical
research, learning objectives for your sponsoring organization and whatever
else you think is important. Please send feedback to Executive Administrator
James Dowden at Academy headquarters. To order, call (323/937-5514)
