A license will increase access to healthcare options, allow conventional medical practitioners to collaborate with Naturopathic doctors and improve the health of our community. )
Here is the info from our state association (NYANP):
A strong naturopathic licensing bill is in the NY legislature and has a new sponsor, Felix Ortiz who is the Deputy Speaker of the House. We have great support in the Senate. The bill is stuck in the Assembly Education Committee because the chair, Deborah Glick won't let it come to a vote.

It will only take you all of two minutes to make a huge difference on the future health of New Yorkers. There are only a few days left in the legislative session but we still have a good chance so this must be done now.
