OUR MISSION

To increase access to quality healthcare and forward the field of Naturopathic Medicine in the areas of public education, accessibility, and efforts toward licensing naturopathic doctors in Rhode Island.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained as general practice physicians and are experts in natural medicine, blending non-toxic natural therapies with current advancements in the studies of health and human systems while covering all aspects of family healthcare from prenatal to geriatrics.

A Naturopathic Physicians Act:

What a licensure bill will do: The legislation would require licensure for naturopathic doctors to practice in Rhode Island, by establishing educational and practice standards and a board to regulate the profession. There are U.S. 20 jurisdictions that currently license naturopathic doctors – 17 states, Washington D.C., and all the U.S. territories.

Why a licensure bill is needed:

Licensure ensures high quality naturopathic care in Rhode Island by protecting the consumer from unqualified practitioners who claim to be naturopathic doctors. Licensure will improve access to complementary medicine and promote business development because more qualified specialists in natural medicine will be encouraged to practice in Rhode Island.

For further information, please contact the RIANP at RInaturopaths@gmail.com

Come join the RI Association of Naturopathic Physicians for its 4th Annual Pizza & Raffle Fundraiser at Flatbread Company in Providence tonight!!!

A portion of proceeds from every pizza ordered between 5-9pm (whether eaten at the restaurant or as take-out or delivery) will support the efforts. Also, there will be raffle tickets you can purchase for a chance to win prizes and support our efforts. For a detailed list of the raffle prizes, visit www.RIANP.org

In July of this year, Rhode Island became the 23rd state/jurisdiction to pass a law to license naturopathic doctors, establishing education standards and a scope of practice for the profession. The RIANP is working hard on the next steps in the process of making naturopathic licensees available in the state. Your support helps make these efforts possible, and it is much appreciated.

Gluten free and vegan options available!

We hope to see you there!! 🙂
