Our Research In Depth
As one of CCNM’s core goals, expanding research relevant to enhancing naturopathic medicine and developing skills among faculty, students, and graduates that foster research activity, is of utmost importance. Our research department is a leader in advancing our understanding of complementary and naturopathic medicine as a contributor to a sustainable health-care system.
By fostering a culture of research, CCNM investigates a range of topics, from addiction to nutrition, in order to explore the strengths of naturopathic medicine, test therapies and influence policy.
