WASHINGTON, May 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- US Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) last week received the Congressional Champion Award of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) in recognition of her strong support for public awareness of naturopathic medicine. Joining the presentation were representatives of Emerson Ecologics, LLC, the leading supplier of professional-grade supplements and health products for integrative practitioners.
"Naturopathic care, as recognized unanimously by the US Senate, is a safe, effective, and affordable form of primary care, and the AANP appreciates all you have done to make that message clear," said AANP President Kasra Pournadeali, ND, who presented the award to Senator Ayotte. "The Congressional Champion Award reflects our appreciation of your support for Senate Resolution 420, which established Naturopathic Medicine Week, a springboard to promote natural health, prevention, and wellness."
"There is no better recipient of this award than Senator Ayotte, given her enthusiastic support of Senate Resolution 420 and naturopathic medicine, and preventive health in general," said Andy Greenawalt, Chief Executive Officer for Emerson. "We are proud to work alongside both Senator Ayotte and our long-time partners at the AANP in the effort to promote naturopathic medicine, and to raise awareness and acceptance of integrative medicine around the world."
