Welcome to the RIANP

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

RIANP in the news:

The Rhode Association of Naturopathic Physicians (RIANPhas submitted H5474 and S327, bills to license naturopathic doctors in Rhode Island.  The House Health, Education, and Welfare Committee had its hearing on H5474 in mid-March and the bill was well received by the committee members. There was a bill hearing with the Senate Health and Human Services Committee on S327 in April which also went well. This fundraising campaign will enable the RIANP to keep its lobbyist and continue its efforts to license Naturopathic Doctors in RI.

You can support our efforts in 3 main ways:

Rhode Island is the only state in New England that does not yet license NDs. Help us to change that! Your donation (big or small) will allow us to continue to work with our lobbyist and educate legislators on the importance of passing the bills to license naturopathic doctors.

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.
