About

HI, I’m Dr. Cheryl Woodson

Like so many other women, Dr. Woodson juggles several roles and tries to drop only the rubber balls. She is a wife, mother, doctor, businesswoman, educator, and an author. She has earned a 2nd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and is an experienced family caregiver who navigated her mother’s 10-year journey with Alzheimer’s disease. She is also an entertaining, informative and inspiring speaker whom the New York Times called “a frank and funny woman.”

Dr. Woodson helps all adults AGE EXCELLENTLY!™, focusing on heart health, preventing illness, managing weight, stress and the miracles of maturity. She helps family caregivers meet their seniors’ needs without destroying their own health, finances or relationships. She is especially dedicated to arming clergy and other community leaders with the information they need to guide their members through difficult decisions about health, eldercare and the end of life. Dr. Woodson helps health care professionals and administrators “Surf the Silver Tsunami”™, maintaining financial viability while giving excellent service to America’s growing senior population. She helps businesses attract senior clients, benefit from the experience and work ethic of the mature work force, maintain a senior- friendly environment, make Human Resource benefits relevant to senior employees, develop Employee Assistance programs for caregiving employees and execute Risk Management protocols that address impaired employees and clients. She also helps legislators enact health care policy that respects the way Americans age TODAY.
