Senate Proclaims Naturopathic Medicine Week, October 6 through 12

The United States Senate, for the second year in a row, has unanimously passed AANP’s Naturopathic Medicine Week Resolution! Our form of medicine is once again declared to be “safe, affordable, and effective.”
 
This year saw the addition of Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Independent Angus King of Maine to Democratic sponsors Tom Harkin of Iowa and Barbara Mikulski (our lead sponsor once again). Thus, the effort was truly bipartisan.      
 
Special thanks go to Drs. Jaclyn Chasse and Tina Beaudoin, and the members of the New Hampshire Association of Naturopathic Doctors, for their dedicated efforts to get Sen. Ayotte as a cosponsor.
 
Go ahead and celebrate Naturopathic Medicine Week in style between October 6-12! Our NMW webpage offers a variety of resources and templates you can use to support and publicize your event.  From educational talks, auctions and tree plantings to wine tastings, nature walks and film screenings, there are so many ways to let people know about the benefits of naturopathic medicine and what NDs can offer them in improved health and well-being!
