DC Federal Legislative Initiative

Book Your Room Now for the 2015 DC FLI
Spring is an awesome time in the nation’s capital and never more so than when NDs and naturopathic medical students congregate for AANP’s annual legislative conference, the DC FLI.

This year’s conference will be held Saturday, May 2 through Monday, May 4. The first two days take place at the Dupont Circle Hotel in downtown Washington, DC. On the final day, participants meet their Members of Congress and wrap up with AANP’s famous Whole Health Reception on Capitol Hill.

The FLI is a fun way for you to learn the nuts and bolts of speaking up for naturopathic medicine with legislators. The program offers a balance of ‘classroom’ topics (such as “Practicing Successfully in an Unlicensed State”), ‘big picture’ topics (such as “NDs and the Future of Primary Care”), and pragmatic information (“The Perfect Pitch: Key to a Successful Congressional Visit”). Whether they’re presenting a perspective from inside or outside our profession, the FLI speakers are always exciting and insightful. Ultimately, the visits held on Capitol Hill advance the profile and standing of naturopathic medicine.
