NYANP Professional Membership; NYANP Board Member

Why did you become a member of the NYANP?

I am a proud member of the NYANP for many reasons. Initially, I joined as a new naturopathic graduate who was interested in supporting state licensing efforts through the financial contribution of membership. Over time, I had the opportunity to attend our annual conferences and experienced that membership was also about meeting naturopathic colleagues here and cultivating a sense of community with others who have very similar and yet unique experiences working in this large diverse state.

Membership provides me the opportunity to grow my referral and resource networks as well as helps prospective clients/patients find me through the NYANP website’s “Find a ND” feature.

In the last year, I have participated more actively as a Board member, getting to see firsthand just how much is going on inside the organization. This role has allowed me to work with colleagues to engage directly in ongoing legislative efforts and to connect with and grow our naturopathic community here. The Board is leading efforts to expand statewide membership, offer more educational opportunities and provide more services and resources. I’ve no doubt that member benefits will continue to increase; especially as more people join the NYANP and get involved!

Why did you become a member of the NYANP?

Being an NYANP member is one of the primary ways I support naturopathic medicine in New York. To me, it doesn't make sense to be practicing here and to not support the organization that tirelessly represents and fights for us. For me, it's less about what I get from the organization and more what I can give because it is in giving that we are going to be made stronger as a profession. We all need each other, as much as we can give of our time and resources. We are a small but mighty group in this state; anything we can do to work together and combine our efforts will only serve to build each and every one of us up and lend legitimacy to the work we do day in and day out.

I love that my financial contribution supports our efforts in New York, as well as the annual conference, which is a terrific time of coming-together for NDs in our state. I've been practicing for a decade and I absolutely love my practice and my patients; but I can sometimes feel disconnected from my colleagues. I joined the board this past year not only to contribute what I can to our profession but also to find ways I can bring us together as physicians and friends. Never has there been a time when our medicine is more needed. The NYANP is here for us and I hope in the upcoming months we will find ways to come together more and more, supporting one another and supporting naturopathic medicine in New York.

Standard Process

Standard Process knows there is a connection between what you consume and your well-being. That’s why — since 1929 — we’ve been a family-owned leader in whole food nutritional supplements.

We believe in the whole food health advantage. It’s a belief that started with founder Dr. Royal Lee, and continues under current President & CEO Charlie DuBois. The great majority of the raw ingredients we use to make our products are grown on our certified organic farm in Palmyra, Wisconsin. We cultivate ingredients from seed to soil to supplement so that we can present them in their bioavailable form.

Quality is at the heart of everything we do, and our methods exceed industry standards. Our scientists run as many as 2,000 tests every week so that we can be sure what is in the bottle reflects what is on the label.

We recognize the relationship between food and a healthy body. We also realize that nutritional supplementation works best when provided with professional guidance. We partner with qualified health care practitioners who believe in a systematic approach to health care.

We’re also investing in a new era of nutrition science with The Standard Process Nutrition Innovation Center. Headquartered at the North Carolina Research Center in Kannapolis, this first-of-its-kind research inspires innovation, offers invaluable clinical insights, and validates our whole food philosophy with scientifically based evidence.

Standard Process has been on the whole food forefront for more than 90 years, and we’re just getting started. We’re pioneers. We’re innovators. We’re changing lives.
