The Barrick Lecture Series provides nationally and internationally distinguished speakers through a generous grant from philanthropist Marjorie Barrick.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a nationally recognized medical news reporter and Emory Clinic staff neurosurgeon, plays an important function in CNN’s reporting on health and medical news for American Early morning, Anderson Cooper 360 °, CNN documentaries, and anchors the weekend medical affairs program Sanjay Gupta, MD.
. His medical training and public health policy experience distinguish his reporting on a series of medical and clinical topics consisting of brain injury, disaster recovery, healthcare reform, fitness, military medication, HIV/AIDS, and other areas. He has actually reported from New York following the 9/11 attacks, from earthquake-ravaged Japan and Haiti, and he added to CNN’s award-winning protection of the Gulf oil spill in 2010.
Gupta’s enthusiasm for inspiring Americans to lead much healthier, more active lives led him to introduce Fit Country, CNN’s multi-platform anti-obesity initiative. In 2011, Fit Nation followed the development of Gupta and 6 CNN audiences as they inspire each other while training for a triathlon.
In addition to his work for CNN, Gupta is a member of the personnel and professors at the Emory University School of Medication. He is associate chief of neurosurgery at Grady Memorial Health center and frequently carries out surgery at Emory University and Grady medical facilities.
Gupta contributes to the CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes and Night News with Katie Couric. He is the author of two best-selling books, Chasing Life (2007) and Unfaithful Death (2009 ), both which ended up being buddy documentaries for CNN.
