Dr. Amy Cole, NYANP Legislative Chairperson and NYANP Vice President, was recently interviewed, along with her patient Teresa Figueroa, by Spectrum News 1.
During her interview, Dr. Cole states:
“Right now in the state of New York, anybody can call themselves a naturopath or a naturopathic doctor, and there are some people who may have done a weekend course or a 10-week online course and are using that term,” says Cole, “The problem with that is that there is no distinction between someone who has done that versus someone who has gone to eight years of school and passed national licensing examinations.”

We encourage you to contact your state legislators and let them know you support licensure for naturopathic doctors in New York. CONTACT THEM HERE.
