    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.

    For detailed information and events visit the AANP's webpage to find a “one stop shop” for activity and promotional ideas and downloadable resources.

    Naturopathic doctors currently are limited to prescribing from a formulary - a list of specific pharmaceuticals approved for naturopathic prescriptions that must be updated yearly in coordination with the Department of Health. Under the new rule, naturopathic authority will expand in line with a principle that governs other doctors' prescribing powers: no restrictions except those of their own "scope of practice."
