In the past week both New Mexico and Idaho have passed legislation to license Naturopathic Doctors in their respective states. The combined vote tally for these two bills to pass was 92 in favor, 3 opposed, and 1 absent. That’s some impressive support!

“Naturopathic Medicine for New Mexico! Thank you to all of the individuals who came before us and worked toward the same goal. Thank you to the NMANP legislative team, you know who you are! Not only have we progressed our profession together but we have changed history. May we continue helping as many people as we can and spreading this much needed medicine. Bueno, Bueno, Bueno!” –Juliette Sweet, ND, president NMANP

“This was truly a collaboration among colleagues. Many members of our association have been working on this for over 20 years and we were happy to lead the charge this session. We are eternally grateful for our lobbyist of 20 years, Kris Ellis and her colleagues Lance Giles and Tammy Perkins who helped get this over the finish line. We are looking forward to the next steps and the party!” – IDAANP board members Joan Haynes, ND & Diana Crumrine, ND
