Southwest Acupuncture College has always valued our United States veterans. We have offered discounted rates in our clinic for many years. As Clinic Manager of the Boulder Campus, I can say that the service that we offer our veterans is one of great importance, honor, and appreciation.

Upon choosing a clinic charity for the Boulder Campus, we wanted to find a program that would be of benefit to our US veterans. After doing our research, we found that there was an amazing 501© non-profit organization that was founded and run by one of our very own graduates. Daisy Lear, who graduated in 2001 from the Boulder Campus, began operating Acupuncture for Veterans and Their Families in 2009. It has been a labor of love for her, growing and learning the best way to provide free acupuncture to our veterans. 

July 8, 2012 - To many this day holds no meaning. To some this date holds great significance. It is a day to be celebrated, and yet it is also a day to be mourned. On this day one family lost their baby, a tiny life that could not be saved. And, in the midst of their overwhelming loss and unimaginable pain they did something so breathtakingly selfless. They saved the life of a child that encompasses so many people’s hearts: Marcos.

Marcos was born with a condition that would result in the loss of nearly all of his small intestine as well as end stage liver failure. He was flown from state to state for care while doctors offered little hope. His only chance: a multi-visceral organ transplant.
