Dear Diana,

I just wanted to thank you again for all of your work making this happen. I had a couple of concerns before embarking on my trip down to New Orleans. One- that it wouldn't be well organized and we wouldn't have the access to people who needed treatment. Two- that this wasn't the right time for acupuncture intervention, when people are still concerned with food and shelter issues. I was wrong to have any concern on either count. It was clear that you had done so much work making connections and establishing different venues for treatment. And more importantly, people really wanted and appreciated the treatment that we had to offer. It blew my mind away to see acupuncture being used so effectively in this way. I'm quite certain that if AWB stays on in Louisiana after the new year, you will be seeing me again. I'm also going to put in a plug for AWB with my online acupuncture chat group. During my stay, I felt like we had plenty to do and could accomodate even more people if there were more acupuncturists. So, I'll try to wrassle up some more volunteers for you. Thank you again and I hope to see you soon.
