Maryland Licenses Naturopathic Doctors

It will also enable consumers to distinguish between licensed doctors who meet extensive education and training requirements and others who call themselves naturopaths but do not meet the state's rigorous licensing standards." Emily has spoken at our study group meeting in the past.
