Seeking sponsors for NMSA formal

Dear Local Connecticut Business,

The Naturopathic Medical Student Association (NMSA) at the University of Bridgeport-College of Naturopathic Medicine (UBCNM), is requesting your support for our biggest event of this year: The UBCNM NMSA Formal

Where: The Westport Inn @ Westport, CT
When: March 23, 2018, 7:00-11:00 pm
Topic: Leadership & Networking

The Naturopathic Medical Student Association (NMSA) is an international, student-governed 501(c)3 non-profit organization established to support naturopathic medical students at accredited schools in the USA and Canada. Our local chapter, under the University of Bridgeport-College of Naturopathic Medicine, focuses on professional development, Naturopathic licensure, student research, increasing the number of ND residencies, and developing our Naturopathic philosophy. We also provide educational resources and increased access to information on how to succeed in our future careers as healthcare professionals. So far this year, we have had the highest recorded attendance at our events so we expecting to host a fantastic turnout of both local practicing Naturopathic Physicians and ND students. Our goal is to attract a wide variety of students, including graduating and recent graduates.

This year’s formal is dedicated towards funding University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine students to attend the District of Columbia Federal Legislative Initiative (DC FLI) held by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP). This event is important because it offers the rare opportunity for Naturopathic medical students and doctors to travel from all across the United States to meet and discuss with members of Congress and staff aides. This is where we raise awareness of current legislative issues and objectives in healthcare policy that are significant to our profession’s success while recultivating the healthcare landscape for an integrative future.

Why Sponsor Us?

  1. Increase Brand Awareness: Your company will be exposed to 100+ Naturopathic physicians, medical students, and other prominent healthcare practitioners from all parts of Connecticut.

  3. Reposition your Brand: Help your company move up in terms of public perception. Connecticut is one of the oldest and most active states in terms of licensed Naturopathic physicians.
