Naturopathy's Toe in the Door: Serving N. American Tribes

Support the Indian Health Care Improvement Act

The Indian Health Care Improvement Act has been reintroduced in the House, and is expected to be reintroduced in the Senate in September. The House bill, H.R. 2708, includes naturopathic medicine in the definition of "health profession," allowing NDs to provide primary care health services to Indian communities. It also will allow NDs to participate in a federal health program and gain eligibility to a federal loan repayment program. I would be very happy if this passed, because I have long thought that I would like to serve certain tribes in my work.

Please ask your Senators to include naturopathic medicine in the Senate version of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act.
