We have another excellent speaker lineup this year. Check out our Speakers page.
Continuing Education Credit
NWNPC 2014 is approved for Category B Continuing Education in British Columbia. Doctors can apply all 15 hours towards Cat B or allot the Tejani/Perry two-hour lecture towards pharmacotherapy.
But you must attend in person for Category B! If you subscribe to the webinar, you will receive Category C CE. There is an added bonus to attending in person: you will get webinar access for 12 months following the convention. This allows doctors to watch the lectures that they didn't attend in person and apply for Category C CE, thereby maximizing the convention's education credits!
The Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine has approved the 2014 Northwest for 15 hours general education. Of that 15, two can be used for Pharmacy (Tejani/Perry) and 1.5 hours could be allotted to Ethics (Jeanne/Sensenig).
BC doctors should note that the CNPBC and BCNA will host their AGMs on Thursday, April 24, immediately prior to the NWNPC convention. This provides an opportunity for BC NDs to get all their Category A and Category B continuing education at one event!
Your registration includes conference lunches on Friday and Saturday as well as the banquet dinner and dance on Saturday night. Our live entertainment following the banquet is the Famous Players Band, Vancouver's best dance cover group.
In addition, join us Thursday evening from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. for the Dr. Turner Social, a pre-conference get-together with a light dinner and cash bar. Our thanks to Dr. Chris Turner for sponsoring this event.
On Friday evening from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m., NWNPA members are invited to participate in our NWNPA reception and are then free to meet with colleagues for dinner on your own.
On Friday evening at 8:00 p.m., we extend an open invitation to all delegates and exhibitors as NWNPC is hosting the Unplugged Sessions, a casual event with live music and cash bar.
The convention will be at the Westin Bayshore along Vancouver's Coal Harbour. See our Accommodations page for more details
