  • Upgrade the Acupuncture Practice Act to include practicing herbal medicine
  • Increase awareness of acupuncture and make its benefits known
  • Draft proactive legislature to advance acupuncture practice in Illinois
  • Defend the integrity of acupuncture practice to protect the public and combat efforts to by-pass regulatory standards with short-course training
  • Strengthen our professional infrastructure to improve services and support for  patients and practitioners
  • Participate in the national activities of the acupuncture profession, including helping to create a new, collaborative structure
  • Partner with other states to promote acupuncture on-the-ground where the work is needed most
