Maryland Licenses Naturopathic Doctors

Naturopathic doctors may now be licensed to practice in Maryland. According to Dr. Emily Telfair, president of the Maryland Association of Naturopathic Physicians, "The law will lead to greater access for Marylanders to doctors who emphasize disease prevention, healthy lifestyles, and natural therapies. 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.
