Last year, my Masters project group designed the first stage of a trial to evaluate the affect of group acupuncture on veteran's with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The community project we were most interested in is the Portland Veterans Acupuncture Project (PVAP). This non-profit, no cost clinic started up last October and has been going strong ever since.

I recently heard that they are treating more patients than ever, with numbers around 70 patients in 4 hours.  PVAP treats not only veterans with PTSD, but also their families. Check out their site and spread the word- I really hope we can get more of these clinics up and running at some point. It is a drop-in service, so there is no need to make and appointment, but if you have questions, the contact e-mail is

Thank you to those who have served.
