About the Event
Learn how to protect yourself and your practice! CAAM's one-of-a-kind Malpractice Insurance will be fully covered in this previously recorded presentation with Live Q&A, hosted by our very own Vaidya Anupama Kizhakkeveettil & CAAM's President, Mamta Landerman.
Meet Marilyn Allen, CAAM’s expert insurance liaison. Marilyn authored the unique malpractice insurance policy for Ayurvedic professionals including a wide variety of therapies and treatment protocols. In this pre-recorded webinar, you’ll learn how to protect yourself by carrying malpractice insurance. CAAM looked at available malpractice insurance policies provided to alternative health care providers, such as Ayurveda. These were often generic, and their coverage was either limited or required additional expenses for broader coverage. We reached out to Marilyn and together created a policy that meets the unique needs of the Ayurvedic practitioner.
You’ll also learn how to protect yourself from being sued by following best professional practices in communicating with your clients and the impact on a practitioner professionally, mentally, and physically of a charge of malpractice.

My Journey into The World of Healing Through Traditional Medicine
Every story has a beginning – a time that brings memories of joy, hard work and learning. Our stories are filled with connections. Mine has brought me to you.
As I think into my past, a multitude of experiences with Asian Culture emerge. I look around me both at home and in my office and see may beautiful Asian art pieces. My love of pearls and jade brings me memories of history as well as cultural experiences.
Moving forward from 1986 when I began my journey into the world of Asian Medicine to 1990 when I began teaching my first class at an Acupuncture School, to present day brings me into classrooms at many of the schools throughout the US. Now even more so with Zoom.
My involvement with the World Health Organization began in 2005. Interest in Acupuncture and world health had begun in 1995 with the member countries of the UN starting a discussion about the high cost of healthcare worldwide. The big question was, “Is there anything that can be added to healthcare to help reduce cost?” The specific areas being addressed for cost-cutting measures were pharmaceuticals, surgical interventions, and diagnostic procedures. In 2010 the work on the Classification of Traditional Medicine Diagnostic codes began and the release is in 2021.
The other committee was Quality of Care and Patient Safety. This is the work on Adverse Events and Safety of Herbal Medicine.
I also served on the committee of International Standards Organization and its work with Traditional Medicine. These committees have led to a great deal of insight into the Advancement of Traditional Medicine.
