Thank you for your support!
The Legal Defense Fund was created by the MAAOM Board to help cover legal expenses for issues which threaten the safe and effective practice of acupuncture and Oriental medicine in Maine. To date, this fund has been used almost exclusively to legally challenge the practice of physical therapists performing dry needling, which currently has insufficient training and oversight to be administered safely. Please note that donations to the Legal Defense Fund will be kept separate from general funds, and used specifically for the above purpose. Please consult with your tax advisor to determine whether your donation to the Fund is tax deductible.
