The Secretkeepers: Benefiting AOM for Veterans The Secretkeepers

A young American capitalist finds himself on top of the world in communist Vietnam, but his dreams of riches and romance quickly descend into a nightmare when secrets from his father’s past come back to haunt him.

Purchasers will automatically be donating to the Veterans Fund, a charitable fund that provides Oriental medicine treatments to military veterans. Author Michael Taromina has long been an advocate for increasing veterans' access to, and coverage for, effective Oriental medicine treatments in the U.S.

The paperback is available at Lulu. Like The Secretkeepers on Facebook. Donations can be mailed to: Veterans Fund, c/o Michael Taromina, 714 Broadway, Suite Five, Paterson, NJ 07514




The American Association for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM) received valuable input that will be used as the basis of our ongoing efforts to represent the profession.

This survey was distributed to approximately 23,000 individuals with 1655 respondents who provided key information regarding topics facing our profession. Adequately defined items that received clear responses may continue to be used in future surveys. Inadequately defined questions that received unclear responses will be modified and may be investigated further in future surveys.

The AAAOM thanks the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM®) and the Council of Colleges for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM) for their assistance in distributing the survey. The AAAOM also thanks the Education Committee members and contributors who diligently worked to craft the analysis of the standards, the survey, and the preliminary survey analysis.
