Nicole Rankine

My professional experience expands over fifteen years of scientific research, eight years of quality management in public health, five years of community health education, and two years as an online adjunct professor. I have conducted research at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other federal agencies (USDA and EPA) and academic institutions. My professional objective is to promote health education through disease prevention in order to increase the overall health and well-being of the public. My personal interests are with HIV/AIDS and STD research, education, and prevention, adolescent health and wellness, quality management as well as program development, implementation, and evaluation. I am also a certified coach with the John Maxwell Team, where I aid youth and college students with their personal growth and leadership development to equip, inspire, and empower them to reach their full potential.
