Naturopathic Medicine Week
Naturopathic Medicine Week is an annual celebration of the power of naturopathic medicine. Across the province, NDs invite you to open houses, lectures, and practical workshops to learn more about leading a healthy life.
The OAND provides support and materials for members to participate in Naturopathic Medicine Week annually. Our main goal during NMW is to bring the profession to light. Members can view our NMW resources in the Member Resource Centre. Stay tuned for updates on the OAND’s 2013 Naturopathic Medicine Week campaign!
