MANCHESTER, N.H., June 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Emerson Ecologics, LLC today announced the award recipients for its 2015 Emerson Grant Program, an annual initiative that awards a total of $25,000 in funding to non-profit organizations working to add value to the integrative medicine community.
Award recipients are selected based on a number of factors, including how well the organization supports the growth of integrative medicine and how many people the project will benefit. The 2015 recipients of the Emerson Grant Program are as follows:
- Michigan Association of Naturopathic Physicians: $10,000 award to support the effort to obtain full licensure for naturopathic doctors in Michigan. Currently only 18 states, four of which are located in New England, have licensing laws for naturopathic physicians.
- Natural Doctors International (NDI): $7,500 grant awarded to assist NDI in expanding its recruiting efforts for additional integrative disciplines, including acupuncture, massage therapy, nutrition, herbalism and conventional medicine. NDI, one of the oldest naturopathic health organizations in North America, is dedicated to bringing integrative medicine to underserved populations.
- Maryland University of Integrative Healthcare, Dispensary Department: $7,500 grant to aid in developing a training program for current Good Manufacturing Process (cGMP) requirements. The University's project also supports the development of Quality Assurance programs for new herbalists and small-size herbal supplement companies.
"Emerson has a strong tradition of providing support for non-profits organizations that are working to advance integrative medicine," said Dr. Jaclyn Chasse, Vice President of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs for Emerson. "We received many very strong applications this year, and it's very exciting to support these groups in their effort to change integrative healthcare practices and make a lasting impact on patient health."
