Tabatha Parker, ND


Dr. Tabatha Parker has dedicated her career to breaking down the boundaries to natural care, and spreading the practice to the areas of the world that need it most. She is the co-founder and president of Natural Doctors International, the first and oldest naturopathic global health organization. NDI is working to gain official relations status with the World Health Organization so that Naturopaths can fully participate in global health policy. Their clinic in Nicaragua serves a shining example of what can be accomplished, providing over 25,000 patients free naturopathic care and nearly $500,000 worth of medicines. The clinic is driven by volunteers, and provides students and doctors the opportunity to hone their practice in a new environment. You can join the cause here. Dr. Parker currently serves as the Director of Education at the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine (AIHM), the leading provider of education and e-learning of health professionals in Integrative Health & Medicine. She is a writer, social justice activist, artist, singer and dedicated wife and mother of two. In 2011, she was given the prestigious UTNE Reader Visionary of the Year award, alongside other global visionaries. She joins her alma mater, National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM), with great enthusiasm as co-chair of the Master of Science in Global Health program, the first global health program offered at a naturopathic medical school.
