Naturopathic Medicine Week

U.S. Senate passes 
Naturopathic Medicine Week 
On September 10th the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution 
designating October 7 - October 13 as Naturopathic Medicine Week.
The resolution recognizes the value of naturopathic medicine in providing  
"safe, effective, and affordable health care..." and encourages 
Americans to learn about the role of naturopathic physicians in 
preventing chronic and debilitating conditions.
Passage of this resolution is an historic achievement for naturopathic medicine.  The Congress has now officially recognized the important role naturopathic medicine plays in effectively addressing the nation's health care needs as well as in addressing the increasingly severe shortage of primary care physicians.
