Classical Graduate, Clark Casteel, Advances Holistic Medicine in Georgia

January 5th, 2009

Clark Casteel, Class of ‘85’, has been a licensed practicing Acupuncturist in the state of Georgia since 2000. Clark played a crucial role in the struggle to have Acupuncture recognized as a legitimate field of medical science in Georgia. In 1999, Clark was an active member in “Georgia Friends for Acupuncture”. The group’s goal was to have Acupuncture recognized as a scientific branch of medicine and be licensed in the State of Georgia . Clark and the group’s work met with success in 2000 when Georgia became the 48th State to license Acupuncturists. Clark, in fact, became the second person to be licensed in Georgia as an Acupuncturist.

Following graduation from Classical, Clark entered the University of New Hampshire graduating in 1989 with a B.A. Degree in History and a Minor in Art and Environmental Studies. In 1995, Clark was awarded a Diploma in Acupuncture from the National Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Also in 1995, he was recognized as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine by the State of New Mexico.

Clark and Maureen, his wife of 10 years, are now living in Georgia with their three children Annalise 16, Michael 4, and Benjaimin 5.
