The DC FLI, coming up April 26-28, is a can’t-miss program for anyone committed to forging new inroads for naturopathic medicine in national and state health policy.  Registration is free for AANP members. 
There’s so much you personally will get out of the FLI.  Attesting to this is a Top Ten List of reasons to sign up for the 2014 DC FLI:
1)      A great opportunity to meet, work with, and lobby alongside some of the best and the brightest
2)      Invigorating discussions led by AANP thought leaders
3)      Insightful dialogue and experience exchange gained through the State Alliance
4)      Lessons learned from leaders in Maryland (both NDs and legislators) who were instrumental in getting their licensing bill passed
5)      Announcement of Emerson Ecologics’ grant recipients for 2014
6)      Invaluable opportunity to educate lawmakers and their staff about naturopathic medicine
7)      The fun and tastiness of AANP’s Whole Health Reception on Capitol Hill
8)      Gain a thorough grounding in AANP’s brand new ‘ask’ to include NDs in Medicare
9)      Take home a slew of advocacy lessons: how to build a strategy, how to engage a lobbyist, how to enlist and work successfully with legislative champions
10)   Confidence builder: learn to present a succinct elevator pitch that communicates who you are, what you do, and our profession’s key objectives
So, register today!  You’ll find an event overview and information on getting to AANP’s hotel from area airports here.  Take part in the enthusiasm and the electricity that comes from NDs and students coming together to put our best foot forward on Capitol Hill.   The last day to register is Monday, April 21.
