Home » News » AOM Club Events to Kick Off New School Year

One great feature of campus life at National University is its student organizations and clubs. In addition to sports clubs, technique clubs and social clubs, each professional degree program also has one or more clubs that promote skill building, community service and social events.

The NUHS Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Club (AOM Club) started the school year by participating in the Illinois Association for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine’s (ILAAOM) 5K walkathon on Chicago’s lakefront.  Sixty-eight National University faculty, students and family members participated in the event which raised $8000 for AOM legislative efforts at the Illinois state capitol.

On Saturday, Sept 27, AOM faculty and students from NUHS will attend ILAAOM’s Asian Moon Festival held at the Phoenix Restaurant in Chicago’s Chinatown.  The event draws AOM practitioners, AOM school faculty and students from all over the state.

This year’s Moon Festival includes a panel discussion on “Convergent Medicines in Illinois: Status and Future of AOM in Illinois Hospitals.”  It will feature a panel of local MD’s and licensed acupuncturists working in integrative medical settings at Northwestern Hospital, NorthShore Hospital, and Rush University.

For others interested in attending the Moon Festival, tickets can be purchased at:
