FNPA Campaign

Greetings from the FNPA!

The FNPA is a group of Naturopathic Doctors who live and work in Florida. We are leading the effort to re-establish licensure for NDs in our state and we are reaching out to the greater naturopathic community for support. Our goal is to raise $30,000 and to gain 10,000 new supporting members. All donations will be used for:

1. Legal Fees: Multiple NDs in Florida have received ‘cease and desist’ letters from the Department of Health. This is a new development in Florida and we believe our efforts have gained enough momentum that certain interests in the state are now actively trying to discourage us. The FNPA needs to retain legal counsel to combat these challenges.

2. Sunrise Report: This official document from the State of Florida concluded in 2004 that licensure for Naturopathic Physicians should not be re-established. Our efforts cannot move forward without effectively addressing this report. We have a consultant lined-up who has the necessary background and experience to effectively craft our rebuttal, but we need the funds to hire her.

3. Committee Week: Every year, legislators from Florida gather in Tallahassee to establish the legislative agenda for the upcoming session. Several of us (and our clients) need to make multiple trips to Tallahassee to garner support for our cause.


You can make the difference. Click here to make a donation (even $3 helps!), or, even better, go to www.FNPA.org to become a supporting member of the FNPA. Also, share this email with your friends and family, post our links on Facebook and Twitter, do whatever you can do to spread the word!

Even if you are not from Florida, we ask you to support our efforts. The Naturopathic profession is advanced every time another state gains licensure. Your donation of $3 (or more) and your effort in spreading the word about our campaign will make licensure a reality in Florida, bringing us one BIG state closer to having all 50.

Thank you for your consideration,
 
The Members of the FNPA
