Pacific College Serving Others 
Through Global Health


Introduction by: Stacy Gomes, Ed.D., with special interview by: Christine Dionese, LAc, featuring the founder of Acupuncture Ambassadors


The increasing interest in grassroots global healthcare organizations has grown over the years. Pacific College students, faculty, and alumni continue to search out opportunities to serve others during their class term breaks. Opportunities abound among volunteer organizations, many of which are listed on the Center for Integrated Care (CIC).
