AANMC member institutions strongly recommend that all members of their communities, particularly those working or learning in a clinical setting, receive COVID-19 vaccination as soon as it becomes available to them. The emerging evidence on COVID-19 vaccinations and treatments is being closely monitored, and all AANMC members support adhering to federal/state/provincial/territorial government and public health agency guidelines for healthcare providers and academic institutions.
That which is not flexible, breaks. Flexibility and resilience are the mantra for 2020 here at AANMC. One of the benefits of being a smaller professional community is our ability to implement changes quickly, assess what is working and adjust accordingly.
Addressing and resolving diversity, equity and inclusion issues on AANMC member campuses is vital to the short and long-term viability of our academic institutions and naturopathic-wide professional health. Systemic racism, and conscious and unconscious bias harm campus and healthcare communities and ultimately negatively impact the quality of patient care all doctors provide.
Dr. JoAnn Yanez, AANMC executive director, joins KCAA’s NBC LA affiliate On the Brink to discuss how the pandemic has impacted naturopathic medical education and the importance of disciplining your thoughts.
