Bill to License Naturopathic Doctors Before the Massachusetts Legislature

The bill (HB 1992/SB 1205) is currently before the Joint Committee on Public Health. A public hearing date is set for November 17 in the afternoon at the State House. On that same morning, the Massachusetts Society of Naturopathic Doctors (MSND) will hold a Lobby Day, where consumers and practitioners will have the opportunity to meet with lawmakers and aides to talk about this legislation.

Massachusetts residents are also encouraged to write their state senators and state representative, asking them to support their right to have access to naturopathic doctors in Massachusetts. Contact information for each senator and state representative can be found at
