the In-Person kick-off summit

On Wednesday, July 11, 2018, over 100 NDs, students and allies came together to participate in a rich, in-person facilitated conversation about the future of naturopathic medicine in the US.  This was a special pre-event session of the AANP 2018 Convention.  Future pieces of the conversation will occur virtually throughout 2018-2019, and close with another in-person summit at AANP's 2019 Convention and Exhibition in Portland, Oregon.
