FBU President Ron Zeidman said recently: 

"A great poet, writer, and Nobel Prize winner, Rudyad Kipling, lived in Asia for many years and wrote:


OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,

Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;

But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,

When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!

The most important part of this quote is that when strong men (and women) meet, there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth.


We must be strong and unite to defend and advance Traditional Chinese Medicine in California and the U.S., a precious tradition that has been handed down to us by so many great doctors over thousands of years. We must all be strong and unite."

Ron Zaidman, MBA, MTCM
President & CEO

"I immediately joined CalATMA as an industry member because I KNOW the value of a trade association.  I also know that speaking with ONE VOICE is vitally important to make changes at the state level and in negotiations with carriers.  For too many years California Acupuncturists were not represented with legislators as well as insurance carriers, with CalATMA that will change- and ALL of California's acupuncturists will now have a voice that WILL be heard."
