I’m Dr. Nina Cherie Franklin, Healthcare Consultant, Self-Care Advocate, and Public Speaker. For more than 20 years, my personal life and career efforts have been devoted to promoting healthy living, accountability and self-care for the prevention and management of lifestyle-driven chronic diseases.
Through leadership, advisory and advocacy my intent is to empower and enable patients and consumers, healthcare practitioners, and wellness professionals to effectively engage, communicate and collaborate in ways that maximize the delivery and overall benefits of preventive programs and services.
I am a scientist with multidisciplinary research experience, clinical training and industry expertise grounded in health promotion, wellness and evidence-based self-management, population health management, and integrative healthcare paradigms.
As a forward-thinking problem solver, I continuously analyze trends in healthcare, evaluate healthcare delivery models, and provide strategic advice and recommendations on the most appropriate courses of action for clients and business partners.
A public speaker with a non-traditional personal journey and ever-evolving career endeavors, I am regularly called on for keynotes, lectures, workshops and seminars in a variety of settings including colleges and universities, corporations, and professional organizations.
Through high-touch, hands-on coaching, mentoring and educational services, I help people navigate through the maze of health gimmicks, fads, and mainstream quackery, equipping them with the tools they need to lead happier, healthier, more productive lives.
As a thought leader and subject matter expert in prevention and self-care, I shape and drive advocacy initiatives that improve health outcomes. My insights have been published in over two dozen scholarly manuscripts and nearly 900 consumer articles across multiple media outlets.
I’m not shy about voicing my opinions and perspectives on emerging health and wellness trends and I don’t hold back in addressing controversial issues, especially those surrounding healthcare policies and programs, and the interplay between diet, exercise and disease.
