Introducing Juli Yelnick

2013-11-27_juliI 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 all.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving to all. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Good Luck on Finals! Congratulation to our graduates of Fall 2013!
