About the Task Force

Mission: To spearhead a program to provide outreach to rural and underserved urban health centers to create primary care positions for naturopathic doctors.

Vision: Improved health outcomes for rural and underserved populations and an expanded Washington state primary care workforce through the addition of naturopathic physicians.

Goals:

  • Increase community knowledge about naturopathic physicians

  • Increase career opportunities for naturopathic physicians as primary care physicians, not adjunctive roles

  • Increase opportunities for loan forgiveness for naturopathic physicians through the Washington State Health Professionals Loan Repayment Program (HPLRP)

  • Assess feasibility of primary care naturopathic residencies in rural clinical settings

  • Begin the collection of Washington State workforce data for naturopathic physicians
