Multiple Health Professions Joining Together

The National Academies of Practice was founded in 1981 to advise governmental bodies on our health care system. It is the only interdisciplinary group of health care practitioners dedicated to these issues. Distinguished Practitioners, Scholars and Policy Fellows are elected by their peers from multiple different health professions.
