Strange, Rare, and Peculiar

A Tribute to Naturopathic Therapeutic Variety

The 2018 NMSA Annual Conference in San Diego was a huge hit with our largest student attendance yet! We hope to continue this incredible trend again in 2019!

The 2019 NMSA Annual Conference will be held at the Oregon Conference Center, August 15-17, in conjunction with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians for the third year of colocation! Join your fellow classmates across North America for a 3-day intensive event with lectures, socials, trivia challenges, and the greatest networking in the profession!

This year’s theme is Strange, Rare, and Peculiar, a tribute to one of the greatest modalities of our medicine. To listen to patients and note what they contribute to the interaction is imperative to providing the best care possible. This year’s speakers will reflect this theme by instructing students and physicians alike on variations of practice type between states, hands-on organoleptic and movement workshops, and training in best business practices!

Additionally, the AANP is offering a post-convention workshop on August 18th! If you’re interested in learning nasal-specific treatments or prolotherapy, you can register and pay for the additional training here!
