And just like that the fall 2021 trimester is back up and running! The warm summer days are coming to an end soon, so I try to take advantage of every sunny day there is.
The two weeks between terms never feel long enough, and it generally takes me a week or two to reorient myself for the new term. As the chair for the student acupuncture club (AOMSA) on campus, I am really excited for some of the things the e-board and myself have planned! Prior to Covid the AOMSA club held a weekly demo and practice session, on point location and needling technique for difficult points, we are so excited to resume this important event for students. We are also planning an outing to Chinatown, we feel it’s important to support local businesses and network with future colleagues in the profession.
Despite the increasing Covid numbers, the student clinic is staying relatively busy. Seeing patients in the Whole Health Center really provides the necessary balance with the classes; being an intern is exciting, and I am glad that we are able to provide care to people in this community. Until next time, I have to get back to studying. Good luck and welcome back to all the students!
