Ann Huntington, MD, FACP, is an Internal Medicine-trained Hospital Medicine physician in the Boise, Idaho area. She has expertise in quality, patient safety, peer review, privileging, and credentials. As a medical director, she led over 50 Hospital Medicine Physicians during the pandemic. She has special interests in lifestyle medicine, integrative medicine, leadership development, physician wellness, and coaching (including Positive Intelligence coach training). She is a co-author in “Thriving After Burnout: A Compilation of Real Stories and Strategies to Reduce Female Physician Burnout.”
As Founder and CEO of Give More Naturally, she has expertise in the field of essential oils and teaches a virtual CME course for physicians and other healthcare professionals on the safety and research of essential oils as an integrative tool. The multi-billion-dollar essential oil industry has found its way into your patients’ homes, and despite the efforts of some to dismiss these as “snake oils”, your patients may have had benefit and will seek answers where they can find them. Additionally, increasing numbers of physicians are using these personally and in their practices, and they are seeking evidence-based training. Of note, essential oils are not FDA approved to treat, cure, diagnose, or prevent disease. What Dr. Huntington shares should not be taken as medical advice and does not constitute a physician-patient relationship.
She enjoys spending time in nature, exploring new places, learning from amazing people, and most importantly, loving her husband and children.
