In tandem with AANP’s effort to have the Veterans Health Administration assign an employment code to licensed NDs, a group of Bastyr University students has created a Facebook page dedicated to raising public awareness of the value of NDs serving veterans.
Check out NDs, students, patients, veterans, and others are encouraged to take a photo of themselves holding a sign with a message supporting the cause and post it with ‪#‎Veterans4NaturopathicMedicine. Post to this Facebook page or Instagram, and share with your friends and family!
Meanwhile, as Congress took the week after Memorial Day for recess back home, AANP members scheduled visits with their Representatives and Senators locally to ask them to sign our letter prompting the VA to credential licensed NDs to work within the agency. We continue to follow up the hundreds of visits held on Capitol during the DC FLI as well.
Materials you can use are located in AANP’s Advocacy Toolbox. Stay tuned for further updates. For questions email
