Boulder Clinic Charity: Acupuncture for Veterans & Their Families

By Rhonda Cooper

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. 

Daisy runs her business 100% on donations. She offers our veterans and their immediate family free community-style acupuncture and massage therapy on Thursday evenings at the American Legion in Longmont, CO. She also offers one-on-one acupuncture treatments by appointment, which is specifically “pay what you can”. 

Our Boulder Campus is excited to be giving to such a great service to our community. We hope you find it in your heart to give back to our veterans as well.
