New Tiered Acupuncture License Proposal

There has been a new proposal for an additional tier of licensure for acupuncturists in New Mexico, LAc’s, which would include “acupuncture and adjunct therapies but not Chinese herbal medicine.”
Reportedly, NM Representative Christine Chandler has been favorably hearing the proposal, and DOMs may well want to weigh in approval or disapproval of such a new license, along with supporting educational discussion of their individual views. We want NM DOMs to have a heads up about this, because there well may be ramifications or unintended consequences if we have LAc’s along with our current DOM’s in the future. To follow is a well laid out letter to Representative Christine Chandler that Dr. Caterina Di Palma, DOM, NMSAAM Board Member at Large, has been working up for several of us to sign when and if we are ready.
