Bio/Research

Dr. Jennifer Brett, ND, L.Ac. is the founding director of the UB Acupuncture Institute. She graduated in 1987 from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and graduated in 1988 from the Tri-State College of Acupuncture. She is currently the chair of two Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM) Committees (CCAOM Distance Learning Committee and CCAOM Research Committee) and a member of the ACCAHC (Academic Consortium for Complementary and Alternative Health Care) Clinical Working Group.

Dr. Brett worked to create an acupuncture degree programs in which students and graduates become caring and responsible citizens and skilled healthcare professionals.

Since the time that Jennifer Brett graduated in 1988, the respect for acupuncture in the medical community has grown significantly. Recently, integrative medicine, defined as a healthcare system that is multidisciplinary and enhances competence, mutual respect and collaboration across all healthcare disciplines, has embraced acupuncture, and as a result acupuncturists now practice in hospitals and multidisciplinary healthcare settings. It is Dr. Brett’s vision that acupuncturists become respected members of the healthcare community in all its various functions, from acute in-patient care to chronic, ambulatory care, research, and training.
