Be a part of the naturopathic profession's largest discussion regarding important topics to us all...
The Annual Pre-Conference Stakeholder & State Leadership Summit!
The first Summit was hosted in 2012 by the AANP House of Delegates with the goal of facilitating open and productive dialogue between leaders from all domains and generations of our profession regarding important topics in the field of naturopathic medicine. The Summit was attended by approximately 75 people and included leaders in the profession, practicing physicians from throughout the country, as well as students. We spent the day discussing three questions, with the help of a Moderator, and the process was designed to allow everyone who wished to voice their opinion to be heard. This year the AANP House of Delegates and Board of Directors will collaborate via a Joint Task Force Planning Committee to come up with an agenda. We hope you can join us. Click here for the agenda
