The Interview

It’s important for all of us to be ambassadors of our medicine. It’s an additional responsibility to go out and to speak. We need to be involved in community organizations and identify ourselves as a naturopathic doctor in those venues. We need to lobby for licensure laws and for scope expansion. We need to be active in whatever way and whenever we can. Of course, there are many more opportunities than we have time or perhaps interest to do. To do as much as we can in maybe just selecting one way in which we advocate, but ultimately I think we need to step outside of the office and to make sure that people are more aware of who we are because we’re out there telling them.
