New Naturopathic Licensure in Colorado
The AANMC is enthralled to announce a new state added to the list of
states that license and recognize naturopathic physicians!
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper paved the way for naturopathic
doctors (NDs) to become an essential part of the state health care
system by approving a measure requiring naturopathic doctors to obtain a
license to practice medicine. The bill, which goes into law in January
of 2014, will make Colorado the 17th state to require licensure for NDs.
We were already planning a prospective student forum in conjunction
with our annual conference in Keystone, Colorado on July 13, 2013. Now
there is even more reason for celebration.
Please feel free to join us or send interested students.
