Named a “pop culture icon” by USA Today, Dr. Sanjay Gupta is perhaps the most media-savvy physician working today. Gupta is a broadcaster, writer, podcaster, and web-contributor, all of which places him in a unique position to examine why certain health-related stories make the headlines and others don’t. In this presentation, he takes a hard look at the media’s role in conveying sometimes frightening information, such as the H1N1 global pandemic and the post-9/11 incidents involving anthrax.
