Welcome to My First Blog!
May is my favorite month of the year. Flowers start to bloom, landscapes become plush, lush and green, students graduate and go off to their new careers, and well, its my birthday month! In short, I love May because it’s a time of renewal.
It occurs to me that I had my own renewal at NESA. I have been at NESA for almost three years. At first, I got to know the community in small bursts. I would meet a few students here, attend a staff meeting there, and run into alumni at various events. Then, I started getting regular acupuncture treatments - both Japanese and Chinese. I even decided to try herbs (now I am hooked). It did not take much - within a short amount of time, I fell in love with everything NESA.
Given my passion for the school and our mission, I am honored to serve as President. While there are many things to do, my immediate focus includes:
- Renewing community connections with students, faculty, administration, alumni, partners, and other supporters
- Renewing our commitment to be a leading acupuncture school
- Renewing our dedication to acupuncture research
- Reinvigorating the progression of the profession
We have started working to meet these goals. I have hosted several alumni events (regional outings and Connections), held Town Hall Meetings, visited other schools to promote NESA and TCM, visited with healthcare providers to flush out opportunities for students and graduates, and made some changes to the facility to improve the experience on campus. This is just the beginning of many activities you can expect in the future.
Please join me in renewing our commitment and energy to NESA. My team and I have many ideas, but we’d love to hear from you and incorporate your ideas as well. Contact me either by email email@example.com or by phone (617) 558-1788 x 374.
Together we will build the leading college of acupuncture in the USA!
P.S. You can expect to hear from me in this blog twice a month. Stay tuned!
