Dr. Julianne Adams Birt is a leading voice for women’s health. In her fourteenth year of practice, she is the founder and CEO of Radiant Women’s Health located outside of Atlanta, GA. She landed south from Harrisburg, PA to matriculate at Clark Atlanta University, taught high school science and health in the Atlanta Public Schools and then obtained her medical degree from Morehouse School of Medicine. As the first black female physician to graduate from Allegheny General Hospital’s ob/gyn residency program, she led as chief resident in her solo fourth year.
Dr. Birt is a personable physician who has grown her practice exponentially serving women from throughout metro Atlanta and has the reputation of being an educator in the exam room. Her fervor for women’s health and notably female sexual dysfunction has brought her before the FDA, U.S. congressmen and conferences where she advocates for sexual health equity for women. She also serves as an advisor and speaker for several pharmaceutical companies in her quest to advance women’s sexual health. She has an ongoing presence in schools, churches and community events which led to the
formation of Dr. Ju Delivers, her platform she uses “pushing wellness for women.”
She has held several leadership roles as department chairman at DeKalb Medical – Hillandale and Rockdale Medical Centers. She served proudly as the 2017 president of the Atlanta Medical Association (AMA), the pillar organization upon which the National Medical Association (NMA) was founded. She is the immediate past Chairman of the Board of the AMA, serves as assistant secretary for the Georgia State Medical Association Board and was elected to the Council on Concerns of Women Physicians for NMA for the 2017-2020 term.
A love for community drives her volunteerism and she serves as medical director for a pregnancy center and as an assistant professor of community medicine for Mercer University School of Medicine. Fluent in American Sign Language, on occasion she can be seen at church interpreting for the Deaf. In July 2018, she was recognized by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. for twenty-five years of membership and service.
Dr. Birt has received business and community awards but was most honored when recognized by her peers in 2015 as the AMA Young Physician of the Year and received an honorable President’s Citation Award for her community service involvement. Juggling a solo practice, community work and leadership responsibilities is challenging but she is passionate about each role she plays. But, none are so revered as that of wife and mother.
