Siyobin Blanco is our POCA Volunteer Coordinator and Office Maven, and self-proclaimed acupuncture enthusiast! She has spent countless hours ‘napping with neighbours’ at GCA after discovering the powerful relief of communal healing through acupuncture in 2016. The clinic has become an incredibly rewarding space for her to find medical treatment, respect and understanding within a dedicated community of both practitioners and clients. She is thrilled to now be a staff member, as GCA’s values reflect her passion for accessible spaces, community building, and patient empowerment within the medical system. In her day to day life, Siyobin is strongly dedicated to working on dismantling the patriarchy through her Feminist Creative Collective and Feminist Markets in Guelph.
