SASA Hosts 9th AcuWeek at NWHSU

This fall, NWHSU’s Student American Society of Acupuncturists (SASA) hosted their ninth AcuWeek. Each trimester SASA brings speakers to campus—virtually and in person—to dive deep into important topics in acupuncture, herbal medicine, and running a practice.  

NWHSU alumni and faculty were featured prominently in the AcuWeek line-up. Angie Lipson, DAc, LAc ‘19, clinic supervisor at NWHSU, spoke to an engaged group of students about building a lucrative acupuncture practice. Laconia Koerner, LAc ‘14 hosted a breathwork session for all campus community members, and faculty member Colleen Moore spoke about Ba Zi: Five Element Constitutional Acupuncture. SASA also invited Stephanie Cheng, MD and medical acupuncturist of the Hosptial for Special Surgery in New York to present on her research on acupuncture and surgery. 

SASA serves to educate, integrate, and represent acupuncture and Chinese medicine students in the profession in order to benefit the public health and future patients they will serve. They host events each trimester, featuring speakers from across the country and the world, including acupuncturists, lobbyists, scientists, researchers, yoga instructors, and more.
