Yo San University Receives Its Largest Charitable Gift

9:32am

Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine welcomed a gift of $1 million dollars from the Thomas S. Blount Trust earlier this month.

Blount, a retired Naval Officer, Aerospace Consultant, and philanthropist,  dedicated his life to being a friend and mentor to many including Yo San University. He was a long-time supporter of the University’s efforts to provide quality instruction to students while serving the broader community through its community clinic with an integrative healthcare model and services.

University President, Lois Green accepted the gift on behalf of the Board of Trustees and the University community: “The extent of Thomas’s support has been greater than many knew through the years. However, this gift is a truly transformational moment for our university. It will allow us to build on our established legacy, continue educational excellence in the classroom, enhance our already distinctive clinical offerings, and respond to the rapidly changing landscape of our profession. As the only non-profit acupuncture school in Los Angeles, our mission and approach is special and this gift further underscores our unique values, commitment to our students, and responsibility as a healthcare provider to the broader community.”

Yo San University, a non-profit organization, educates students to become exceptional practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Taoist healing arts. The school facilitates the development of students’ spiritual and professional growth, and provides the community with an integrative medical care model and services. Yo San University offers two fully accredited degree programs: Master of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (MATCM) and Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM). Both are accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM), the recognized national accrediting body for programs educating acupuncture and Oriental medicine practitioners.

Since 2000 through our clinical internship program, the University Community Clinic along with its externship site partners have provided more than 255,000 free or subsidized acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments to the underserved communities of Los Angeles.
