In this course, practitioners will identify the historical and current barriers that the BIPOC population faces to access East Asian Medicine. Through an understanding of historical and current barriers, practitioners will be able to synthesize solutions to create better access to care for the BIPOC communities.


By the conclusion of this webinar, participants will:

  1. Be able to identify how history has shaped medical racism;
  2. Gain insight on the clinical manifestations of inability of BIPOC access to care;
  3. Be able to determine the importance of non-racially injurious care;
  4. Be able to synthesize solutions to the inability of the BIPOC community to access East Asian medicine as a form of care.



Dr. Tenisha Dandridge L.Ac., a Sacramento native, started her undergraduate at Morgan State University in electrical engineering and computer science. After the loss of her maternal grandmother, she became interested in natural medicine. Dr. Dandridge had a growing cornucopia of her own health concerns that were not being addressed or well managed by the standard medical model. After a chance meeting with an OBGYN trained in Chinese herbs, she fell in love with acupuncture and Chinese medicine. The treatment was so successful at treating her own health concerns, she went to Bastyr University to finish her undergraduate degree.


Dr. Dandridge has been in private practice for more than 11 years. She received a B.S. in Natural Health Sciences and an M.S. in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine from Bastyr University in 2008 one of the leading schools of Natural Medicine in the United States. Bastyr’s program included 1000+ clinical hours in acupuncture, 400+ clinical hours with Chinese Herbal Medicine. She received her Doctorate in 2018 from Pacific College of Health and Science in 2018. Dr. Dandridge has certificates in Clean Needle Technique, CPR, Acutonics, Dr. Tan DNT, Electro-Acupuncture, Micro-needling, Facial Acupuncture, and NADA.


She is the author of “Unusual Tale of Acupuncture, Racism, and African American History in the USA,” co-founder of BlackAcupuncturist.com.
