Our amazing team of NDs, patients, family and employees put on a successful lobby day in Albany yesterday. We had over 60 meetings, signed on many new sponsors for the bill AND the licensing bill passed the Senate Higher Education Committee, 16 voted yes, 2 no and 1 without recommendation.
What is next?
We’ll be meeting with the State Education Department and the Senate Finance Committee members. Goal is for the bill to pass the Senate in the next few weeks.
What can you do?
Post this link in your Facebook and Linkedin page asking everyone in NY to send an email to their legislators:
- Naturopathic Doctors fill a GAP in the health care system in New York
- NDs know how to prevent chronic illness, and thus decrease health care costs
- NDs need to be licensed to diagnose and treat so that patients have access to their care
We are in this together! Your participation matters.
