UPDATE FROM ACAM HEADQUARTERS
Dear Elizabeth,

Over the past year we have experienced a lot of progress! With President Allen "Buddy" Green and our new headquarters team located in Bozeman, MT this year has been successful in many areas (CLICK HERE to view ACAM HQ). However, we are still missing YOU and your membership. Have you considered the changes that ACAM has gone through, the growth it has experienced, and thought about joining? Now is the perfect time - with nominations currently be held for several Board of Director placements, your input can help shape ACAM further.

In late 2014 at the annual meeting, ACAM proudly welcomed four new board members, including: Tim Guilford, MD, Howard Hindin, DDS, Dennis Harper, DC, and Ahvie Herskowitz, MD. Now we are again seeking assistance with filling four more board positions.  In addition to these board positions, we seek integrative professionals to fill positions remaining on various committees. Could either of these opportunities be something you would be interested in?

In closing, we are here to serve ACAM's great community and want YOU to be a part of it! Join us at our annual meeting - this year's program has more renowned faculty than ever, and the education committee has worked tirelessly to balance CME credits while offering our members what they overwhelmingly asked for: less CME and more cutting-edge, practical workshops.  We are thrilled that the CME credits available were only slightly reduced from last year and we've been able to bring you peer reviewed, non-commercial education at a very affordable price.

Please join us and become a part of the voice of integrative medicine - ACAM has been active since 1973 and has a history rich with medical advancements - become a part of that history today!

At your service,
Veronica Haynes
ACAM Executive Director
ACAM 2015 ANNUAL MEETING EARLY REGISTRATION ENDS JULY 15th
TAKE ACTION: LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

ACTION ALERT FROM ANH:
Stop the FDA from Overstepping Its Authority Again
At a recent Pharmacy Compounding Advisory Committee meeting, an FDA representative said that nutritional supplements will need to be on a pre-approved list in order to be compounded, and solicited nominations from the public for the "bulk ingredients list." But nowhere in the legislation does it say that the FDA can ban compounded supplements.

FDA "Compounds" Its Attack on Supplements

The FDA's hostility toward both supplements and compounded medicine is legendary-after all, they compete with the FDA approved drugs that pay the government's bills. Now the agency is attacking compounded supplements.  

A few weeks ago, ANH-USA reported on an amendment designed to fix a number of the most problematic regulations arising from Congress's Drug Quality and Security Act (DQSA). The amendment would clarify provisions governing "office use," allowing physicians to keep certain quantities of compounded drugs on hand in their office, and also remove the cap on interstate shipments if the medication is for an individual patient. ANH-USA strongly supports this amendment, as it would ensure patient access to important compounded medications which are currently endangered. GET MORE INFORMATION
