Communication Sent on August 23, 2014
Dear Schools of Homeopathy,
ACHENA is pleased to have completed two open community
forums on school accreditation with homeopathy schools.
The first was held on July 17th and the second took
place on August 20th.
The focus of these meetings has been on:
academic freedom and review of curriculum
process for achieving accreditation with emphasis on
the first step, the eligibility phase
associated with accreditation.
Both meetings were very productive and ACHENA has
received positive feedback from participants.
ACHENA is pleased to share the following information
which will allow you to listen to the sessions.
This seems to be a good resource because we sent out a
link after the first meeting and in the weeks after the
session more than 10 people listened to the recording.
I also heard from folks who hoped to attend the second
session but were unable to at the last minute. Below is
information about how to access the recordings. You can
listen to the entire call by dialing the following
number and inputting the access code listed below.
Please note that the phone numbers are not toll free, so
based on your phone plan, there may a charge.

ACHENA needs the
support of the entire Homeopathic Community: students, schools,
organizations and consumers as we seek United States Department
of Education recognition. USDE recongition will enable students
of accredited schools to access federally backed student loans
and student visa's, as well as help raise the profile of
homeopathy as a credible health care profession.
homeopathy, support ACHENA!
