Everyone in San Francisco Has Health Care
Healthy San Francisco is an innovative program designed to ensure that everyone in the city and county of San Francisco, regardless of income, has access to a basic level of medical care.
Unfortunately the program doesn't cover acupuncture at this time. But if San Francisco hired just five full time acupuncturists to deliver Chinese medicine care to program participants, I guarantee you that people would be getting better faster and staying healthier longer. Everyone knows acupuncture is excellent for pain. But Chinese medicine also gets excellent results with a whole host of problems that affect public health: diabetes, addiction issues, mental health, asthma, and on and on.
