The OANP has an active presence in Salem among Oregon’s lawmakers as well as various Oregon government agencies. In order to promote the profession of Naturopathic Medicine, the OANP works to educate legislators, monitor legislation, and advocate for or defend against bills which affect the scope of practice of naturopathic physicians.
