Biography

Holly Atkinson, M.D.--a physician, TV personality, medical columnist, author, human rights leader, and experienced CEO--is expert at helping people make meaningful change in their lives and in their communities. Womenfluence(TM), a term coined by her, reflects her passion about and devotion to women's health and well-being.

Dr. Holly Atkinson is the host of the new America's Best Hospitals Video Series, launched in July 2009 along with the much anticipated U.S. News and World Report's "2009-10 Edition of America's Best Hospitals. The videos take viewers behind the scenes of the rigorous selection process and reveal what it takes for a hospital to be named one of "America's Best."

She is the senior on-air Medical Correspondent and Chief Medical Editor of HealthiNation, the leading digital consumer health video network.
