Dr. LaMont was appointed to the board of directors of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association (CNDA) in 1998. She
chose to take a sabbatical from her busy practice in May of 2000 to serve as Executive Director of the CNDA and lead the successful
legislative campaign to license NDs in California. Passage of the Naturopathic Doctors Practice Act resulted in the creation
of the Bureau of Naturopathic Medicine within California's Department of Consumer Affairs. Licensure of NDs provides Californians
legal access to the care of licensed naturopathic doctors, and NDs need no longer fear "practicing medicine without a license".
Their established scope of practice in California allows licensed NDs to serve as primary health care providers who treat
acute and chronic conditions, in a prevention-oriented approach to healthcare. For more information on licensure of NDs, click
Dr. LaMont was awarded "Physician of the Year" by the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians in 2001 for her leadership
