Topic: Licensure Efforts for Naturopathic Physicians
In 2017, the Massachusetts Society of Naturopathic Doctors were successful in attaining licensure for naturopathic doctors in the state. This was after a 2 decade effort and was received with great enthusiasm. Attached below you will find some of our appeals. During the lead up to getting through both chambers of the Massachusetts State House, Dr. Rothenberg spearheaded the effort as MSND President. To read some of the materials we used, basic facts about naturopathic medicine and the history of the bill, please see below. Now that Massachusetts is licensed Dr. Rothenberg has shifted her focus to helping other unlicensed states as a resource for other ND state leaders. She also continues to write broadly for the profession and a compilation her writings can be found here.
