Local Efforts for Pain Care

Acupuncture Arrives at Health Centers in Clackamas County

In late September 2016, the Clackamas County Health Centers entered into a partnership with National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) to provide low-cost, high-quality group acupuncture at their Beavercreek Clinic once a week. Many of the Health Centers' insurance partners include this as a covered service for their members, so for most patients, there is no cost. Both patients and medical providers have been very excited about this opportunity to help with chronic pain management, and schedules have remained full for treatment. The Health Centers hope to continue the partnership and grow this opportunity to their other clinics.
