With IIN’s Health Coach Training Program, eligible members of the NAACP can further support their communities with a world-renowned education in improving health and creating impactful transformation.


“We’re excited to be able to offer our life-changing education to members of this important organization,” said Lynda Cloud, IIN’s CEO. “The NAACP is doing incredible work to advocate for improved access to health care and health care equity, and IIN is proud to align with their efforts by providing educational resources to help make that possible.”

An IIN education empowers individuals to take control of their health, their careers, and their lives through a comprehensive curriculum focusing on nutrition and nutrition science, coaching methodologies, business-building, and personal development and transformation. Graduates of IIN’s Health Coach Training Program not only have the opportunity to create their own health coaching careers, but also spread their knowledge and passion for living a healthy, happy life.

“In addition to the NAACP’s work to reform policy and community infrastructure that impact the Black community’s ability to thrive, it is also of utmost importance to provide education to create sustainable change,” said Antoine Holman, NAACP’s Vice President of Corporate Relations. “In our partnership with IIN, we know we will be giving our members access to the kind of information that is necessary to improve health and happiness, and in turn, share this knowledge with their communities.”
