I saw this little tidbit in the Maui News recently and thought I'd share:
MICHAEL HOWDEN, Lic.Ac., was elected chairman of the Hawaii State Board of Acupuncture at the board’s August meeting. He served on the board from 1995 to 2000 and was reappointed this year by Gov. Linda Lingle.
Howden has been an acupuncture provider at the Outpatient Clinic at Kula Hospital for more than 10 years and has also served as an accreditation site visitor for the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Commission, the national accrediting body for acupuncture colleges. Source
I'm sure Hawaii will benefit greatly from this addition.
