On Friday October 8th Dr. Paul Mittman, President and CEO welcomed Senator Harry Mitchell who spoke to over 200 guests attended the Ribbon Cutting and official opening of the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences new Medical Center. The new Medical Center was located on the SCNM main campus in Tempe, and is the home of the largest naturopathic medical clinic in the Southwest.

“It’s an exciting time to be pursuing a career in naturopathic medicine,” said Dr. Paul Mittman, president of SCNM. “There is an unprecedented rise in obesity and autism in children, an epidemic of cancer, heart disease and diabetes in adults. With lifestyle factors, particularly diet, lack of exercise and stress, at the root of so many conditions, patients seek more and need more, than just drugs and surgery. At SCNM, we’re proud to be training a new generation of physicians who combine the best of Western biomedicine with patient-centered, evidence-based alternative therapies.”
Currently, the Medical Center serves over 20,000 patients each year. The team of physicians which includes naturopathic doctors, chiropractic physicians, medical doctors, and Oriental medical doctor, acupuncturists, colon hydro therapists and a psychologist treat patients suffering from:
• Allergies and Asthma
• Children’s Illnesses including ADHD and Autism
• Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome
• Obesity and Nutritional Disorders
• Cardiovascular Disease
• Women’s Health Issues
