Dear Supporters of Naturopathic Medicine

Please take a moment to let your state legislators know you support HJ 124 ( It should take less than 90 seconds.

This resolution calls for a study to assess the possibility of naturopathic doctors being temporarily licensed in Southwest Virginia. This will help remedy the severe shortage of health care professionals in this area.

Naturopathic doctors are uniquely skilled to offer the type of preventative medicine which is so badly needed in the Southwest – a region plagued by disproportionate rates of diabetes, heart disease and other preventable conditions.

You can either send the form letter as it is, or add your own input.

Thank you for letting your legislator know you support this important initiative.
