CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

The Pennsylvania Association of Naturopathic Physicians (PANP) invites you to submit an abstract to present at the PANP Annual Conference. Abstracts are due by July 31st, 2017 and will be reviewed by the Conference Committee. Please read abstract guidelines prior to submission.

Integrating Naturopathic Medicine with Conventional Care

This year the PANP is celebrating passage, of legislation that will finally regulate the practice of naturopathic medicine in Pennsylvania. As more and more states open their doors to naturopathic doctors, there are ever expanding opportunities for NDs to integrate our model of care into conventional settings. Qualified providers of whole-person care are needed more than ever in order to more completely address chronic illnesses like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, autoimmune disease and chronic pain.

The PANP is seeking naturopathic doctors who have navigated this expanding integrative landscape, who have managed to honor the underlying principles of naturopathic care in conjunction with healthcare providers from other disciplines. Do you have a tried and true method of pain management in conjunction with chiropractic care and a physical therapist? Have you worked closely with a rheumatologist? Have you forged a relationship with a dietitian for your diabetic patients? Or, simply, how do you navigate private practice patients who are actively consulting with outside providers? We are seeking your experience and your wisdom.

Key Topics:

The Conference Committee is seeking presentations for Saturday, October 21st on a range of topics regarding integrative chronic disease management: diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, oncology care, and pain management, among others. We are also looking for examples of integrative co-management of illness. Other topics may be accepted, as determined by the conference committee.
