The Mississippi Oriental Medicine Association, or MOMA, was formed in April of 2007 as a non-profit, professional organization of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine practitioners, students, and friends interested in traditional and modern Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine throughout the State of Mississippi. MOMA’s original mission statement, “Dedicated to enacting fair and safe acupuncture laws in Mississippi,” rang true in the spring of 2009 when the Mississippi Legislature passed, and Governor Haley Barbour signed into law HB 458, The Acupuncture Practice Act. MOMA is proud for this tremendous leap and we will now continue to encourage and foster the healing art known as acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in our fair state.
As this professional organization grows, so does our focus. Now is the time for MOMA to promote and encourage public information and education about the practice of acupuncture and provide all the benefits possible to the membership of the organization. And, in all ways, serve and promote the public welfare.
