Dr. Ling Zheng, a community leader

I have known ZHENG Ling for almost 28 years since our college days. He has always been a witty and energetic guy. He is someone you would want to have around when you get together with a bunch of friends. In year 1982 and 1983 ZHENG Ling and I were at the same internship rotation site, which is a rural area in Fujian. He was always liked by hospital staff. Of course he was a very likable classmate to us, his peers. His wife whom he married was a beautiful nurse then working in the very hospital. At present, ZHENG Ling and his wife happily live in New York City.

Between New York City and Fujian, ZHENG Ling and I lost contact with each other for 16 long years. When I came to New York City in 1999 to a reunion of Fujian Medical University (FJMU) Alumni, to my surprise I saw him there. The bigger surprise was the fact he had become an established Acupuncturist in Manhattan.

Needless to say I was proud of what my friend has achieved. Soon after he decided to practice acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine he passed the national acupuncture exam and became a certified acupuncturist. A few months later he was licensed by the University of State of New York Education Department as a licensed acupuncturist. Since 1994 Dr. ZHENG has owned LZ & Manhattan Acupuncture P.C., a private practice, where he has been providing health care in main-stream community and Japanese community, in Manhattan mid-town, New York City.

To many individuals, achieving the business and financial status that Dr. ZHENG has achieved is a huge success and a satisfaction. Dr. ZHENG, however has gone extra miles to serve others. He has been very active in the Acupuncturist professional community and the community of FJMU Alumni in the U.S..

1994 to 1998 he served for NCCAOM as a professional examiner to be in charge of the acupuncture board exam in the acu-point location;

1997 to 1999 he was a board Committee member of American Acupuncture Association. AAA is a nationwide acupuncture professional organization with more than 30 years history;

Since 1999 he has been the executive vice-president of American Acupuncture Association;

Since 2004 he has served as vice-president of Traditional Chinese Medicine Academy Association (USA), which consists of more than 600 TCM practitioners and researchers in the east coast of U.S. Due to his great contribution for acupuncture community, he received the year 2005 excellent service award from the organization.

Since 2004 Dr. ZHENG served as the executive director of the preparatory committee of Acupuncturist Union in New York State. Many acupuncturists have recognized that the acupuncturist union is the best organization form to protect their professional benefits and raise their professional status, through legislation and dealing with politician or government. The union idea has been accepted widely by the acupuncturist community in New York area through strong promotion. The union plan will be realized in the near future, with strong support from the acupuncturist community. Dr. Zheng has been playing an important role to promote the union idea, with his personal influence in the acupuncturist community.

1998 to 2004 he cooperated with BAUS (Buddhism Association of U.S.) and organized 121 times of free acupuncture treatment in Chuang-Yen Monastery, Carmel County, New York. Dr. Zheng and his acupuncturist volunteer team had offered more than 7200 sessions of free acupuncture treatment for more than 3500 patients in there.

Since 1999, ZHENG Ling, as one of founding members, has devoted himself to the seeding, organizing and operations of the AAFMUA. He and Ruoqing HUANG, the current president of AAFMUA, were key alumni who ignited the idea of organizing a friendship association for all FJMU alumni in the U.S., which then under ZHENG Ling and many other alumni’s effort has become nowadays AAFMUA, a strong community.

Dr. ZHENG served as Vice President of AAFMUA 2000 – 2002, as Advisor to AAFMUA 2003 – present. Since 2003 he has been serving as a Treasure to the organization, overseeing financial operations and actively organizing the AAFMUA activities in New York City.
