Sticking Together, July 2019
Registration is open for POCAfest #13 @ Marin Headlands!
POCAfests are always great fun at Marin Headlands and this year we have a great schedule with plenty of breakouts good for many CEUs. (See below to show that we ain’t just braggin’.)
Community Acupuncture will be 17 and a half years old, so come and join us as we together tell the tale of our Endurance. Sign up soon as we tend to sell out when we go to one of the most beautiful places on this continent!
