Resources are everything for an ND. For a small profession, it pays not to reinvent the wheel when others have developed the information, arguments and templates you can use. So, check out AANP’s Advocacy Toolbox. Whether it is a State Alliance webinar you’d like to replay, a map showing the numbers of licensed NDs in each state, research concerning the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of naturopathic medicine, a comparison of state scopes of practice or prescriptive authority, model letters to insurers on Section 2706, or anything else you need, the Toolbox is likely to have it.
More than a combined 250 point papers, fact sheets, PowerPoint presentations, videos, reports, side-by-side comparisons, and templates can be found across these categories:
  • The Legislative Process
  • Grassroots Advocacy
  • Fundraising
  • State Licensure
  • Naturopathic Medical Education
  • Naturopathic Primary Care
  • Prescribing Authority
  • Malpractice/Safety Record of NDs
  • State Insurance Coverage
  • Section 2706
  • General Research
  • Cost-Effectiveness Research
  • Research on Specific Conditions
  • Compounded Medications
  • Countering the Opposition
  • General Information on the Profession
For virtually any issue or need you have in the legislative or regulatory arena, it’s likely someone’s already shared their materials and lessons learned with AANP.  We’re stronger together and the Toolbox is here to provide immediate value for you and your state association!
