The APP now offers an audio presentation called “The Point Podcast.” This is a downloadable MP3 for your computer or MP3 player.  Like the printed version of The Point, episodes are available quarterly with segments that feature piercing safety information for the public and professional industry, and interviews with APP Members and industry leaders. We hope this presentation helps make piercing safety information more available for anyone who needs it.

Questions, comments, and suggestions can be sent to Committee Member John Johnson.
