Dr. Archelle Georgiou combines her deep knowledge of clinical medicine with a breadth of experience in business and health care administration to pursue her passion for simplifying the health care system.

One of Archelle's greatest joys is using the media to communicate directly with the public and health consumers. She conducts a twice weekly Fox TV healthcare segment in the Twin Cities. She offers viewers a practical and balanced analysis of the latest health care news headlines and translates the information into practical tips they can use to take better care of themselves. She is also a Fellow with the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality & Healing and works collaboratively with the Center to empower consumers to navigate the health care system.
In the public policy arena, she serves as a Senior Fellow with Newt Gingrich's Center for Health Transformation. Dr. Georgiou is a frequently invited speaker at healthcare industry and consumer forums on topics such as health reform, health information technology, and innovative health models. Some of the highlights include being a guest on Oprah and Friends with Dr Mehmet Oz, testifying as an expert witness in Congress and being an annual guest lecturer at the Wharton School of Business. In the Spring 2009, Dr. Georgiou was a medical correspondent on an international expedition with Dan Buettner and the Blue Zones Team to explore the secrets of longevity.
Dr. Georgiou is a graduate of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She trained and practiced in internal medicine in Northern California before transitioning into healthcare administration and policy. Archelle lives in Wayzata, Minnesota with her husband and three children .
