The Asian & Pacific Islander Caucus for Public Health (Est. 1974) represents the unique health issues and needs of the multi-lingual, multi-ethnic Asian Pacific populations, both within the United States and in U.S. territories in the Pacific Basin. The Caucus has also been instrumental in advocating for the adoption of established complementary and alternative medical practices empirically and scientifically proven in Asia, such as acupuncture. Since its creation in 1974, the Caucus has seen major growth in respect for and adoption of Chinese medical practices by North American allopathic physicians.
