He is Director of the Sandhill Crane Clinic in Dallas and founder of the Third Coast Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He
founded the Dallas Qigong Association in 1986. Dr. Stuart Mauro, LAc, OMD established the Dallas College of Oriental Medicine (DCOM), in 1991, the
college was originally known as the Third Coast Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and was developed with two goals in mind: producing an exceptional program of study in Oriental medicine, and
providing affordable health care for residents in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. In May 1999, the college became a candidate for accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. It soon established a reputation as having one of the best clinical training components of any Oriental medicine school in the country. In 2000, and again in 2002, the college was honored as one of three schools to receive an “Outstanding Clinical Training” award from
the TCM World Foundation. Its Oriental medicine program received full ACAOM accreditation in May 2001.

The center is now located in offices in Richardson Texas after the humble beginnings in the living room
of Mr. Mauro and Ms. Merrill, the center soon hopes to build a permanent home on 30 acres now
