CALL TO ACTION: PLEASE READ. THANK YOU!
Help improve healthcare in Connecticut by supporting prescription rights for naturopathic physicians!
TIME SENSITIVE INFO ALERT! CT Residents – Your help is needed!
We have GREAT news: the Public Health Committee is officially moving forward with Proposed House Bill 5902 (‘AN ACT CONCERNING NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE’, to require the CT Department of Public Health to determine the formulary for naturopathic physicians)!
Initial discussions begin TOMORROW, 2/8/19, and a public hearing for this bill has been secured (more info to follow as we get it)!
More than ever, we need CT residents writing, calling, and tweeting their legislators! Made easy for us with this link: www.congressweb.com/aanp/71/
For nearly 100 years, Connecticut has supported diversity in healthcare by licensing naturopathic physicians. Unfortunately, the laws surrounding naturopathic medicine do not reflect the education and training that modern naturopathic doctors (NDs) receive, and severely limit the type of care these physicians can offer to their patients.
We are working to include prescription rights for a limited formulary of medications for naturopathic physicians in Connecticut, so that patients can access a full scope of naturopathic medicine during a single naturopathic visit.
We are confident that this will increase access to healthcare, reduce duplication of services (and therefore healthcare costs), and improve patient outcomes.
Join us in the fight for naturopathic prescriptive authority!
TAKE ACTION NOW! We have made it simple for you to type in your HOME address and send the pre-written letter to your local legislator, either through the e-form or you may print it out and mail with your signature. Link can be found here: http://www.congressweb.com/aanp/71/
