In 2003, beloved family physician James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H., (pictured above) made a radical career change. He launched what was then called Family Doctor magazine as an in-depth, fascinating extension of the office visit—a venue for readers to connect to health-care providers in a new way. Doctors and the general public embraced the publication. Samir "Mr. Magazine" Husni proclaimed it one of the "Most Notable Launches" that year.

In 2009, Dr. Hubbard transferred his efforts to online education, transforming My Family Doctor from a print magazine to a top online source for upbeat, practical, trustworthy health information. Its key outreach product now is its health newsletter, delivered worldwide.

About Dr. Hubbard

A family physician for over 25 years, James Hubbard, M.D., M.P.H., created some of the most successful family practices in Mississippi. In 2003, frustrated by managed care and the lack of time doctors could spend educating patients, Dr. Hubbard launched what he then called Family Doctor: The Magazine That Makes Housecalls, a national magazine written by health-care providers for the general public.

Dr. Hubbard remains on the front lines of health care, seeing patients part-time. “My goal is to give people the information they need to make informed decisions about their health, so they can live healthier, more fulfilled lives," he says.

In 2011, Dr. Hubbard launched a new venture,, where he uses news stories, likely scenarios and humor to teach you how to treat medical problems during disasters when you can't get to a doctor.

Educational Background
Dr. Hubbard graduated from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in the top of his class. A member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society (for the nation's top medical students), he was then chosen for the highly acclaimed Parkland Memorial Hospital internship in Dallas, where he trained in internal medicine.

Dr. Hubbard went on to establish two of the most successful medical practices in North Mississippi. He has earned a Master of Public Health, is board certified in occupational medicine and is a fellow in the American Academy of Family Physicians.
