People on the move

The Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the professional association of licensed naturopathic physicians in the state, has announced that it is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Naturopathic physicians practice naturopathic medicine, a comprehensive healthcare system with a unique philosophy that combines traditional, natural therapeutics with modern, scientific medicine. Naturopathic doctors treat the whole person, rather than just the symptoms of illness. The WANP is celebrating its anniversary by launching an outreach campaign with a newly designed Web site and a greater presence in local communities. With health care reform front and center on the national agenda, the WANP seeks to raise awareness about the increasingly valuable services of naturopathic medicine.
