The People’s Medicine Project (PMP) is a social justice project that seeks to address community health disparities by increasing access to alternative healing. We envision an inclusive culture of wellness, based on an empowered connection to personal health, the earth, and each other.
The People’s Medicine Project hosts a weekly free complementary and alternative health clinic that provides access to several alternative healing modalities. The clinic is staffed by volunteers and held at the Recovery Project in Greenfield on Mondays.
In addition to clinic, People's Medicine coordinates an acupuncture access program in partnership with Greenfield Community Acupuncture to provide regular acupuncture treatments to people in early recovery from opioid addiction at no cost to clients; manages a medicine garden at Just Roots Community Garden and holds regular educational and volunteer events there; and partners with local organizations to do health and wellness education.
