This ongoing conversation process kicked off with an in-person Summit in July 2018 with the purpose of identifying common themes. The conversation continues with a series of three live, facilitated virtual discussions centered around key themes impacting the profession. One more remains. At the close, the team of leaders spearheading this effort will work to distill as much of this conversation as possible into an actionable agenda that individuals from across naturopathic medicine can get behind.

Wednesday, July 11, 2018
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.
