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 chronic diseases.
Through leadership, advisory and advocacy my intent is to empower and enable consumers and healthcare professionals to effectively communicate and collaborate in ways that transform primary healthcare processes from acute and reactive to proactive, planned and coordinated.
I am a scientist with multidisciplinary research experience, clinical training, and industry expertise grounded in lifestyle-based chronic disease prevention, health promotion strategies, and integrative healthcare practices.
As a forward-thinking problem solver, I work with nonprofits and for-profit organizations to develop evidence-based interventions, drive advocacy initiatives, and build strategic frameworks that improve health-related outcomes.
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 the realm of self-care, my insights have been published in over two dozen scholarly manuscripts, abstracts and book chapters, and nearly 900 expert articles and blogs 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.
