Naturopathic Medicine Week
Naturopathic Medicine Week means something extra special in Maryland, because it's all thanks to Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD). In 2013, Sen. Mikulski introduced a resolution to the U.S. Senate to honor naturopathic doctors for the work they do. The resolution passed unanimously, kicking off celebrations around the country. Here in Maryland, we celebrated with open house events and a wellness walk in Baltimore. This year, Sen. Mikulski has sponsored the resolution yet again, and we're hosting more events!
2014 is also the year in which Maryland voted to license naturopathic doctors, and we hope you'll join us in celebrating this landmark achievement.
We hope you'll join us in this celebration of all that naturopathic medicine and naturopathic doctors do in our offices and in our communities.
