Dr. Nathaniel Currie was instrumental in revamping our employee development and training program at the Wanda Alston Foundation. Under his guidance, our program has seen a real transformation. Dr. Currie helped us establish process and procedures that has turned our facility to a healthy, thriving, and professional place to work. His influence on our program has been extraordinary.

Dr. Currie has the key to connecting behavioral health, HIV care and services, and mental health. He is one of the brightest… and has a plethora of community field experience… I highly recommend Dr. Currie's expertise.

Nathaniel is an intelligent, articulate, curious individual who is comfortable with himself and with others. His ability to try on new ideas and share his own thoughts and experiences with others continually enhances his clinical work. His commitment to social justice and social action as well as his commitment to social work values also underscore his awareness of the world in which we live and his role in making it a better place for those without voice or representation. As a former social policy professor of Nathaniel’s when he was a graduate student at Simmons College School of Social Work I observed first hand his ability to contribute his own unique experience and perspective to the class, while at the same time actively engaging in the critical analysis of the related theory and policies and their implication for social work practice. Mr. Currie has excellent oral and written presentation skills; he is grounded and level headed; and he is able to think creatively and analytically while at the same time maintaining a sense of curiosity and humor which are invaluable assets.

Diligent, passionate, and efficacious are the first words that come to mind when I think of my good friend and colleague, Nathaniel. From navigating the intricacies of the child welfare system to leveraging psycho-education about mental health to communities of color and society at-large, Nathaniel's work embodies his commitment to changing the landscape of this great profession. Nathan is committed, in truth and action, to issues that disproportionately affect vulnerable populations. His contributions are immeasurable. I admire his work, and I am honored to call him my friend.

I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to do good works with brilliant, passionate people who make me laugh and bolster my faith in humanity. I met Nathaniel when he served as faculty for an online continuing medical education program designed to raise the standard of care for Black gay men. He is a skilled and authentic speaker dedicated to supporting the entirety of a patient’s well-being – inclusive of body, mind, and spirit. With a wealth of theoretical and practical wisdom, Nathaniel points the way to how a compassionate and integrated healthcare system should function.
