CONNECT 2022:

Breaking Barriers to Excellence

 

The Annual Continuing Education Conference of the

Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians

 

Friday, October 14 - Sunday, October 16, 2022

(All virtual)

We selected “Breaking Barriers to Excellence" as our CONNECT 2022 conference theme because we recognize that there are many barriers that can create challenges in the practice and promotion of naturopathic medicine. We also recognize the resilience of our profession and the reality that, like waves eroding granite, we persevere. We intend for this theme to inspire us all to consider what and how we have overcome and to recognize and celebrate our individual and collective excellence in providing competent patient-centered medical care.

CONNECT 2022 Gala

While all of our educational content will remain entirely virtual for the third year in a row, we are delighted to incorporate an in-person event this year as part of our effort to CONNECT and CELEBRATE our community. On Saturday, October 15, we will take over the gorgeous and unique Emerald City Trapeze Arts in the SODO neighborhood of Seattle for a truly unforgettable evening. This not-to-be-missed event will include an in-person vendor fair with cocktail/mocktail reception, a banquet dinner, a brief awards ceremony, desserts, a DJ, a dance floor... and a world-class trapeze show. Get your Gala tickets when you register for CONNECT 2022 to get the lowest prices! We do hope you'll join us!
