Christine Turner, WHNP-BC, graduated from Brenau Women’s College, Gainesville, Georgia, in 1984 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. In 2001, Chris attended the Nell Hodgson School of Nursing (Emory University) to pursue a Master’s Degree in Nursing in the Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner program. She is certified by the National Certification Corporation for the Obstetric, Gynecologic, and Neonatal Nursing Specialties Center. She is a member of the National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health and North American Menopause Society. Chris began her career as a staff nurse at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta; she specialized in Hematology/Oncology. Since then, she has worked in a wide range of settings including community and university-based HIV/AIDS clinical research sites, hospice, a progressive independent women’s clinic, an Atlanta area women’s prison and a private Gynecology/ Urogynecology practice. Chris has worked in the Metro-Atlanta area in various settings in Gynecology/Women's Health, HIV/AIDS and Oncology/Hematology. Much of her clinical research knowledge was derived from working with clinical trials at the AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta (ARCA) and at the Emory University ACTG program. Other important insight and experience was gained through providing hospice care at Atlanta’s Haven House and administering public health education programs for incarcerated women and men in Georgia through Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health. She also practiced at Metro State Women’s Prison (GA Department of Corrections/Office of Health Services), which afforded her opportunities to both develop and implement women’s health policy. Chris practices with a focus on health education and prevention/treatment of disease for women of all ages and socioeconomic status.
