OPENING SESSION - Thursday, July 25

Dr. Jennifer Ashton

Dr. Jennifer Ashton is a Board-certified Ob-Gyn, women’s health expert, author and two-time Emmy award-winning Chief Medical Correspondent for ABC News and Good Morning America. A practicing physician, Dr. Ashton operates a private medical practice committed to improving the lives of girls and women by increasing health literacy and busting myths that have spread through folklore with little medical or scientific basis. Affectionately referred to as your all-in-one ‘BFF’/Ob-Gyn, Dr. Ashton marries an unparalleled medical background with an accessible attitude, breaking the barrier between doctor and patient.  

 

Prior to being named Chief Medical Correspondent & Health editor, Dr. Ashton served as ABC News Chief Women’s Health Correspondent, was a co-host on the Emmy Award-winning daytime medical show, The Doctors, and the Medical Correspondent for CBS News. She regularly contributed to a number of shows including The Early Show, CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, The Dr. Oz Show and TLC’s A Baby Story.  One of the few practicing physicians with a national media platform, Dr. Ashton’s dual roles in clinical medicine and medical media keep her on the cutting edge of medical and health news and advances.

 

Dr. Ashton is an award-winning author of five books including The Body Scope For Girls, Your Body Beautiful, Eat This Not That When You’re Expecting, and The Self Care Solution: A Year of Becoming Happier, Healthier, and Fitter – One Month At A Time.  In 2019, she released Life After Suicide: Finding Courage, Comfort & Community After Unthinkable Loss, a heartbreaking, yet hopeful memoir of surviving the suicide of a loved one.
