Naturopathic Medicine Week

Each May, I join dozens of Naturopathic Doctors and students in our annual Federal Legislative Initiative (DC FLI).  I am very proud to say that all of our efforts at DC FLI have paid off and this year was a huge success thanks to the efforts of our wonderful staff at the AANP. This year, our “ask” was a resolution that October 7 – 13 be declared Naturopathic Medicine Week.  It passed the Senate last month and this has been a wonderful first official Naturopathic Medicine Week.
