Naturopathic Medicine Week 2022 gives us the opportunity to show how naturopathic medicine is safe, affordable, and effective. Through a variety of activities and messages coordinated by our local Naturopathic Medical Student Association (NMSA) chapter, we can demonstrate the value of naturopathic medicine to current and future patients, public policy makers, reporters, and community leaders.
This year, we’ve got six campus-wide events planned, culminating in our annual “Black Tie for DC FLI” fundraiser in support of the Federal Legislative Initiative. Each Black Tie ticket includes a donation, plus dinner, drinks, and an opportunity to bid in a silent auction. We hope you’ll join us for one of our favorite nights of the year!
Below is this year’s event schedule, plus an overview of how to participate on “Team NUNM” in our annual intercollegiate social media competition.
