Media Centre

The OAND represents naturopathic doctors in Ontario. Naturopathic doctors are experts in the field of natural health and are unique in that they look at the root cause of illness, rather than just suppressing symptoms.

At the OAND, we believe naturopathic doctors are the future of health, and that patients and readers are looking for ways to expand their current view of health and explore healthcare options. We are committed to helping media representatives get the information and insight needed to keep pace in a competitive news environment. The OAND can connect you with naturopathic doctors across the province, and the OAND team is a valuable news and information resource for health reporters and editors covering health and well-being topics including; chronic disease prevention and management, collaboration with other health professions in treating patients with serious conditions including cancer, cardiology and much more.

We are flexible and will work with you either on a background basis or as a quoted news source. Our insight can be helpful in terms of understanding how naturopathic doctors fit in Ontario’s healthcare system as primary healthcare providers, as well as provide an in-depth look at the different therapies and treatment methods used in naturopathic medicine. We can help you frame stories and explain complex issues and problems - as well as provide ways to minimize, address or solve them - in terms that meet your needs as a reporter and which your audience can quickly grasp.

We are responsive and will honour your deadlines. We’re dedicated to working closely with print, television, radio and Web reporters to help them get the background information and the expert connections they need to maintain momentum on breaking news or to support lengthier features, think pieces and television or radio segments.
