Frank Forencich



"I have worked with Frank Forencich at two major medical meetings, the 2011 Ancestral Health Symposium, and the annual. "Heart Symposium" in 2011 in Kansas City. Frank is a superb public speaker–articulate, extremely knowledgable, and passionate in his presentations. He has a fun and endearing interactive style that is both enlightening and entertaining. Frank captivates his audiences and gives them unique and practical advice on how to become more fit and less stressed. I speak at and or attend science and medical programs around the U.S. dozens of times each year, and thus I have the chance to see and hear the top scientists frequently. Frank Forencich is one of the most effective presenters with whom I have ever worked."
