Dear Community Supporters and Community Leaders,

Dongguk University Los Angeles (DULA) respectfully seeks your support for expanding acupuncture services to meet the needs of underserved residents of Los Angeles.

DULA was established in 1979 to provide training in traditional Asian medicine (acupuncture and herbs) and its teaching clinic, the “OM Center,” has been delivering low-cost care to underserved and elderly local populations for four decades, serving thousands of patients annually. The conditions we treat range from pain relief issues to stress-related emotional imbalance, digestive and gastrointestinal distress, without the negative side-effects associated with western medicine. The OM Center also provides lifestyle counseling and nutritional support services for heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions that require long-term care. Many of our low-income patients do not use western medicine. For them, our OM Center is their gateway to health services. While our primary offering is acupuncture services, we encourage the use of complementary modalities, including western preventive and therapeutic treatments.

Acupuncture is a well-known treatment system that is popular among the communities we serve in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, time restrictions on student clinicians limit access to our acupuncture services. This year, in commemoration of our fortieth anniversary, Dongguk University Los Angeles (DULA) made a commitment to expand traditional Asian medicine offerings to our communities to meet the demand. We are starting a “new clinician” program that will enable recently licensed graduates to expand daily patient service hours. In addition to meeting the growing demand for our services to low-income and elderly patients, this new program will give extra clinical opportunities that will keep some of our most gifted graduates in the field.

We need your support to launch our “new clinician” program. Please consider being an inaugural donor to our expanded clinic. We are a 501c non-profit organization, and your tax-deductible donation will off-set the low-cost care that we are able to offer for our patients. Please click on the donation options available. Your support will help us help our community in need.
