Traveling the POCAverse
Elizabeth Ropp (aka Roppy) writes in about her most recent POCA vacation, POCAation, to Cape Cod.
“We had a great visit with Diana Di Gioia, and her wife, Melody, from Community Acupuncture on Cape Cod. I got another stamp in my POCA Passport. We went on some bike rides, trips to the beach, and had a back porch jam session.”
Community Acupuncture on Cape Cod is the 4th CA clinic in the country to open.
It’s the second clinic to use “Community Acupuncture” in their name.
Diana co-taught the first CA 101 class on the east coast
Diana has mentored several acu-punks who have opened successful clinics of their own.
Join the fun at POCAfest
There are still openings for the upcoming POCA Fest, but sign up soon. The location is popular and it most likely will sell out.
Jeff Levin, co-owner of Oakland Acupuncture Project will provide the keynote speech, "Chronic Pain, Endurance, and the Future of the Acupuncture Profession". Please join us as we discuss and solve common issues that we all face.

POCA Tech student published in JACM
Big congratulations and applause to Cohort 4 student (and BOD Treasurer) Helen Scharber for navigating an arduous peer review process to get this fantastic article to print! There is a PDF of the article attached to one of the postings, since the journal’s website is not free.
