A discussion and examination of Vermont’s pioneering efforts to reform health care with Lorilee Schoenbeck, N.D. Free and open to the public. Presented by Goddard College’s undergraduate program. More info below or call 802.454.8311.

Conventional health care is collapsing of its own cost and weight. National health reform, in some areas modeled after Vermont's pioneering initiatives, offers unprecedented opportunity for providers who actually know how to offer prevention and low-cost solutions to chronic illnesses. Come learn how one Vermonter is challenging the status quo to help shape the new primary health care for the 21st century--and how you can too.

Lorilee Schoenbeck, N.D. is a 1986 graduate of Goddard College's BA in Health Arts & Sciences program, and a 1995 graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, OR.  She helped Vermonters pass a law licensing N.Ds in 1996, and since 2005, has been the chief activist and organizer behind four Vermont laws that have brought naturopathic physicians to primary care physician status, covered by all Vermont insurances including Medicaid.  

Her clinic, Mountain View Natural Medicine in South Burlington, will become one of the nation's first Patient Centered Medical Homes (Advanced Primary Care Practices) lead by naturopathic physicians who collaborate with many complementary and alternative medicine providers.  She teaches in the Wellness and Alternative Medicine Program at Johnson State College, is primary author of Menopause: Bridging the Gap Between Natural and Conventional Medicine, and serves as Chair of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians' State and Federal Affairs.
