2 Remarks from NCH Leadership The National Center for Homeopathy is grateful for the support we ve received this past year, and we are pleased to share our accomplishments for 2015 in this Annual Report. As you will see, contributions from generous donors who believe in our mission to promote health through homeopathy enabled us to make great strides in our program areas: education, advocacy, outreach, and community. Through the annual conference, webinars, publications, social media outreach, strategic alliances, educational programs, and other initiatives, we re continuing to serve homeopathy and all those whose lives it touches. This year s particular accomplishments include: Active engagement with the homeopathic community to respond to hearings by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Collection of 4,000 comments for the FDA request for comments on the use of OTC homeopathic medicines. Reached a record number of people more than 1 million! - through our publications, social media, conference, educational programs, and website. Dedication of a Pennsylvania historic marker at the site of Dr. Constantine Hering s home and office, now the Pennsylvania Convention Center, site of the 2016 Democratic National Convention. New board leadership structure to encourage participation and facilitate transitions. It is only with the help of our donors and community partners that we are able to fulfill our mission to keep homeopathy a viable option and expand its availability. Thank you for your continued contributions and for showing us that you believe in our work. Together, we will continue to accomplish great things. To your health, Ann Jerome, PhD, CCH, RSHom(NA) President Alison Teitelbaum, MS, MPH, CAE Executive Director 2

4 Our year in review NCH focused on mission efforts in 2015 by celebrating the past and embracing the future with homeopathy! NCH honored homeopathic history: On November 8, 2015 NCH dedicated a Pennsylvania State Historical Marker to honor the life and work of Dr. Hering, a pioneer in the fields of homeopathic research, education and practice. Adding to the magic and excitement of this special event, we were joined by Dr. Hering s great grandson, Conrad Hering Knerr, and most of Conrad s six daughters for the dedication. The marker sits at the site of Hering s home and office at the corner of 12th and Arch Streets, Philadelphia, PA. The NCH Board of Directors hopes that this marker will help to introduce homeopathy to thousands of new people each year! Mission Impact As a result of the incredible support from our donors, NCH spread the word on homeopathy to nearly 1 million people in 2015! Joint American Homeopathic Conference NCH continued to present the Annual Joint Homeopathic Conference, which took place May 8-10, 2015 in Philadelphia, PA. Achieving record high attendance, we welcomed over 350 attendees from across the US and around the globe to celebrate the 10th year of this exceptional event! We were excited to add a new feature to the conference experience, the Homeopathy Academy for Moms Live! Workshop & Marketplace. Those who enjoyed the Homeopathy Academy for Moms webinar series had the opportunity to attend in-person educational workshop sessions and visit with over 30 sponsors and exhibitors in the exhibit hall marketplace.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, NCH was able to be on site during the entire proceeding and NCH s Executive Director was able to provide testimony on the first day describing consumers love of and positive attitudes about homeopathy. NCH also had representation on site throughout the FTC public workshop in September exploring how OTC homeopathic medicines are marketed to consumers. In addition, NCH fielded a survey of nearly 20,000 consumers who had purchased at least 1 OTC homeopathic medicine in the past 2 years to collect data on consumer behavior and attitudes around OTC homeopathic medicines. Results showed that: More than 95% of respondents indicated they were very or extremely satisfied with the most recent OTC homeopathic medicine they had purchased and used. More than 96% of respondents indicated they were OVERALL extremely satisfied or satisfied with the results of OTC homeopathic medicines that they had used in the past. Over 98% of respondents reported that they were very likely to purchase OTC homeopathic medicines again in the future. More than 97% of respondents indicated that they were very likely to recommend homeopathic medicines to others. NCH submitted this data to the FDA as a part of its overall comments and encouraged more than 4,000 concerned consumers to submit their own comments to FDA about their experiences and attitudes about OTC homeopathic medicines. 7

8 Our vision for the future NCH is dedicated to improving our programs and capabilities so that we may continue to spread the word on homeopathy, provide a foundation for the homeopathic community, and support the advancement of overall health through homeopathy. With that, we are excited to share some initiatives and goals for the coming year. Strengthen and Grow Our Community We at NCH are extremely grateful to have such a strong community of support, and to show our appreciation NCH will conduct a year-long initiative in 2016, the Healthy, Happy, Homeopathy Giveaway! Everyone who signs up to receive NCH s free monthly e-newsletter will be automatically entered into the giveaway, and winners will be drawn throughout the year to win amazing prizes from NCH. We look forward to strengthening existing connections and welcoming new members into the NCH community! NCH also plans to conduct a Community Outreach Project, a survey for the homeopathic community. The purpose of this initiative is to determine the current needs of the homeopathic community, to anticipate the future needs of the homeopathic community, and to identify NCH s role in meeting these needs. We are proud to be the voice of homeopathy and the response to the Community Outreach Project will clarify how NCH can best represent and provide for the needs of our constituents. Educate and Raise Awareness A large part of our mission is focused on spreading awareness of and providing education about homeopathy. In support of our mission, NCH continues to develop and distribute information and important updates on homeopathy. Moving forward, we will continue to create innovative and interactive ways to share news about homeopathy with the world and to grow our community. Additionally, we will update our most popular brochures to keep content fresh and to provide timely information on news and advancements in homeopathy. 8
