Initiated by NUNM and the Oregon Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the Living Legend award honors extraordinary lifetime achievement by members of the naturopathic medical community. Each year a Living Legend is selected from nominations submitted by the community for their demonstrated leadership, commitment to excellence, and selfless contributions to the advancement of natural medicine. Recognition of living legends also serves as a reminder of the proud history of natural medicine in Oregon, and provides an opportunity for all naturopaths to meet and interact with long-established physicians.
The Living Legend Ceremony
This year’s Living Legend ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019, during the Oregon Association of Naturopathic Physicians’ Annual Pharmacy and Ethics Seminar, an event that draws 300 naturopathic doctors to Portland. The annual Living Legend is celebrated along with the accomplishments of other alumni.
