In the aftermath of hurricanes, floods, fires, Covid-19, and the ongoing fight against police brutality, acupuncturists will be called upon to address enormous amounts of trauma and the tools for trauma informed care will be more essential than ever.

The focus is on how to provide trauma prevention and recovery care to impacted communities in times of crisis.
