DC Federal Legislative Initiative

Registration for the 2015 DC FLI is now closed
To book your room at the Dupont Circle Hotel, call 202-483-6000 and reference “American Association of Naturopathic Physicians” OR click here and reference code AMER300415.  Note: April 15 is the last day for both program registration and our $199 room block.
At the FLI, you’ll be treated to nonstop networking and education sessions, and participate in workshops designed to hone your ability to pitch both naturopathic medicine and AANP’s legislative priorities.  All of that will come in handy when you visit your Senators’ and Representatives’ offices on Capitol Hill – the final exciting day of the FLI.
Here are just a few of the sessions on tap in this year’s agenda:
  • Framing Your Message – learn from seasoned NDs how to effectively promote naturopathic medicine to the public and media
  • Tackling Tough Topics – take part in a discussion of vaccinations and residencies, two subjects considered the Achilles’ heel of efforts to become licensed and expand scope
  • Healing Our Nation’s Healthcare System – a prominent medical anthropologist’s perspective on the role naturopathic medicine can and should have in health policy
  • Healing the Wounded Warrior – a panel discussion led by Dr. Jane Guiltinan examining how NDs and integrative medicine are gradually moving into the military and the VA
  • Breakouts designed to help NDs and students connect with one another and receive updates from licensed and yet-to-be licensed states, respectively
  • Sessions exploring how to practice successfully in unlicensed states, providing tips on successful practice per se, and offering ways that students can help state associations
