Dr. Sheri Prentiss Speaker Biography

Dr. Sheri Prentiss is a proven visionary, best-selling author, and highly sought-after physician leader. She is a board-certified occupational & environmental medicine physician, public health expert, professional speaker—CSP® (Certified Speaking Professional™), and a breast cancer survivor. Through her unique experience as a physician and a patient, she has mastered emotional intelligence, thus her mindfulness allows her approach to treatment to transcend medicine. She is a force for change in health care, teaching practitioners to transform their healthcare delivery thereby improving the patient experience.

Dr. Sheri also shares her story, her voice, her life, and her victory in impassioned and captivating speeches. Her remarkable story of pain, loss, and change has inspired hundreds of thousands of people across the country and abroad through more than 500 keynote speeches and private seminars. Her keynote topics include: Creating Remarkable Patient Experiences by Cultivating Remarkable Providers: Beyond Business as Usual; New Physicians Engaging Providers through Authenticity; Not Just Surviving but Living and Thriving; Creating Physical & Emotional Health and Healing: A Word of Wisdom for Women; What You Eat—A Life and Death Decision; and Managing the Mayhem—The Clock is Ticking.

She has been featured in The New England Journal of Medicine, MORE, Essence, Oxygen, Today’s Chicago Woman, Weinberg Magazine, and the Chicago Tribune among other notable publications. She has also been featured in hundreds of television and radio interviews reaching millions with her expertise in helping individuals unlock their potential, boost their self-esteem, set new directions, and prepare for life-long achievements. She is a gifted motivator for those needing to transcend tragedy, redirect/reinvent, and tap into unrealized potential, and it is her personal journey that makes her most qualified to guide women and men through most difficult times. She has become the Queen of How to Let Go & LIVE and creator of Medicine Meets Ministry: Dr. Sheri’s Blueprint on How to Let Go & LIVETM, a step-by-step program that teaches individuals how to shift their focus from what they’ve lost to what remains in order to bring a new vision, path, and purpose for their life into view.

Dr. Sheri has dedicated her life to encouraging others to L.I.V.E. life to its fullest. For her that means to:

Love myself and others

Inspire those around me

Voice my dreams and ambitions

Enjoy life!

Recently, she founded her own nonprofit organization, the LIVE Today Foundation, an organization that enhances the quality of life for breast cancer survivors, especially those who suffer from lymphedema. The organization contributes to the health and well-being of its recipients by providing much needed and medically necessary compression garments. In addition, Dr. Sheri is also the creator and host of The LIVE Today Show, which airs at 5:30 pm CST every 2nd Wednesday of the month on CANTV Channel 21 and streams live at cantv.org/hotline.

Dr. Prentiss is an ordained minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For more than 20 years she has trumpeted the truth of God’s power to change those lives that want to be changed. As a medical practitioner, practical truths are woven into her every speech, message, and panel discussion. She has a keen ability to merge science and sacred, without being overly secular. She knows how to mix faith with facts and not lose her faithfulness to God’s Word. She challenges listeners to hear with both natural and spiritual ears, as she expounds knowledge and wisdom, so as to provide an opportunity to gain an understanding. To this end, she launched a new podcast, the first of its kind, “Where Medicine Meets Ministry: Dr. Sheri Talks Faith & Facts” a podcast that addresses fundamental questions when it comes to spirituality, health, medicine, death, dying, and faith using a combination of a solo-cast, case studies, testimonies, and interviews with guest experts.

Dr. Prentiss obtained the following degrees: BA, with honors, Northwestern University 1989; MD, with honors, Loyola Stritch School of Medicine 1993; MPH, with a 5.0 GPA University of Illinois School of Public Health 1998; CPE (Certified Physician Executive), CCMM 2007; CSP® (Certified Speaking Professional™), National Speakers Association. She is a member of the American College of Occupational & Environmental Medicine as well as a Fellow, Former Director of the Board, and CPE Tutorial teaching Fellow of the American Association for Physician Leadership. Her executive experience includes Program Medical Director for Advocate Healthcare Occupational Health & Employee Health for the entire State of Illinois; Global Medical Director of Medical Operations for Hospira; and Associate Area Medical Director for the United States Postal Service. She is the former National Spokesperson for Susan G. Komen 3-Day as well as the former National Ambassador for Health Equity for Susan G. Komen.
