The Alliance for Natural Health (ANH) has been working for the last year to update their website and include ACAM's Physician+Link website search engine. The renovation is nearly complete and ACAM doctors will be able to be found by thousands of potential patients with this connection! We're looking forward to doubling, possibly tripling, our referrals once the ANH site is live! ACAM welcomes Executive Director, Gretchen DeBeau, to this year's meeting. Stop by to say "Hello!" and get important legislative updates!

The FDA is convinced that compounded medications pose a risk to public health and that the products produced by Big Pharma are almost always preferable. Over the past 2 years, AANP has filed no fewer than 8 sets of comments objecting to FDA's proposed rules to restrict office use and limit the ability of physicians to treat their patients with safely compounded medications.
In addition to the arguments we have been making, AANP would like to present an economic case to the FDA, documenting how many patients rely upon and benefit from compounded medications. Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. It will also help us calculate what our win on DMPS earlier this summer (when the FDA's Advisory Committee voted to approve the substance) means to NDs in concrete terms.
