• Qi Gong GrandMaster
Dr. Erlene Chiang, LAc, OMD, board member, began offering free treatments in 2001 at 4 times a year in a Buddhist temple in Ukiah. As the need for medical attention there grew, she started recruiting colleagues of Chinese medicine and western medicine to volunteer in serving the residents of Ukiah. Since 2010, the Foundation offers 10 free clinic annually, 6 times in Ukiah and 4 times in El Cerrito.
Erlene has worked 28 years as a licensed acupuncturist in El Cerrito in her private practice. She saw the possibility of changing one’s diet and lifestyle patterns to improve one’s health. Patients are trained with health conscious and health independence. During the 11 years of serving on the volunteer medical team, she understands the need to reach out to families that could never have a chance to be educated and taught about self healing. Through the practice of the free clinics, Fountain Project utilizes the best of medicine and education to teach patients to change and make a big difference in their own health care by Qigong exercises, self-acupressure, diet change and lifestyle changes.
