The Franklin Health Research & Education Center was established Dr. Jessie Hawkins to raise the bar in integrative health education. Franklin Health was originally authorized as a formal college in late 2013 and provided professional certification programs until early 2020. Today, Franklin Health prioritizes continuing professional education in evidence based holistic health and clinical research on holistic, preventive, and public health.
Our mission at the Franklin Health Research & Education Center is to empower health professionals to distinguish between the science and pseudoscience of holistic health.
We conduct original clinical research into traditional health sciences, such as aromatherapy and herbalism, to identify sound scientific principles and distinguish those from ineffective or potentially dangerous treatments. These findings, along with other evidence-based holistic health research, are disseminated to health professionals and advocates through our professional education programs.
