RIANP Fundraiser at Flatbread in Providence

The fifth annual fundraiser for the Rhode Island Association of Naturopathic Physicians (RIANP) will be held from 5 to 9 p.m., December 3, at Flatbread Company, on the East Side of Providence. That night, the RIANP will receive a donated percentage of every pizza ordered in-house, as take-out or home delivery. 

Additionally, the RIANP will be hosting a raffle with health-related prizes. Raffle winners will be drawn at 9 p.m., and do not have to be present. Visit RIANP.org to learn about the specific raffle prizes. To purchase raffle tickets before the event, email 
[email protected] or contact a naturopathic doctor. Raffle ticket prices are one ticket for $1, six tickets for $5, 14 tickets for $10 and 30 tickets for $20.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained to address healthcare needs of people of all ages. With a focus on prevention and wellness, NDs use nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, bodywork and counseling to address health concerns and minimize the need for pharmaceutical therapies or surgeries. In July of 2017, Rhode Island became the 23rd state to pass a law to license naturopathic doctors, establishing education standards and a scope of practice for the profession. This year’s fundraising proceeds will support a lobbyist and RIANP’s efforts for acquiring health care insurance coverage of naturopathic visits. 

Location: Flatbread Company, 161 Cushing St., Providence. For more information, visit RIANP.org. See ad on page 29.
