I thought this week would be best time
to introduce my fellow colleague and classmate Juli Yelnick. Juli
will be the new AOM blogger next trimester. I am graduating this
trimester on December 12 with my Master of Science in Acupuncture
with honors. I will still be around NUHS because I am also in the
doctor of naturopathic medicine program. I also will be working
with a former colleague as a licensed acupuncturist in her practice
in March after I pass the boards, of course, in January. I am
currently in process of publishing two journal articles and writing
my own book.
Juli Yelnick is a wife, mother, teacher, and student of oriental
medicine. She began the AOM master's program in Fall 2012, and she
continues to enjoy that journey today. Julie has always been
interested in natural living, and the need to reduce exposure to
unnecessary and potentially harmful chemicals becomes even more
apparent when you become a parent. Through this program at NUHS,
she is learning how to be well the natural way, and wants to share
this with others.
In addition to attending the evening AOM classes, Juli teaches
World Culture and American History classes at the college level.
Anthropology has always been my passionate research interest, so
adding ancient Chinese traditions to the mix is nothing but fun for
her! Juli loves integrating what she learns at NUHS into the
courses that she designs, and she recently had the opportunity to
co-author an Anthropology text book that explored the
interconnectedness of seemingly disparate world cultures and
values. Currently, she is gearing up to coordinate a return medical
brigade to Nicaragua through the integrative medicine non-profit
organization Natural Doctors International.
I want to personally thank everyone who has supported the AOM
blog. I have enjoyed sharing my many cases and experiences with you
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving to all. Merry Christmas and Happy
Holidays. Good Luck on Finals! Congratulation to our graduates of
