Gupta next speaker in series

Published March 3, 2014

Physician and television journalist Sanjay Gupta will speak at 8 p.m. March 26 in Alumni Arena, North Campus, as part of UB’s Distinguished Speakers Series.

A practicing neurosurgeon and chief medical correspondent for CNN, Gupta reports on health and medical news for several shows and documentaries, and anchors the medical affairs program “Sanjay Gupta, MD.”

Gupta’s medical training and public health policy experience distinguish his reporting on such topics as brain injury, disaster recovery, health care reform, fitness, military medicine, HIV/AIDS and other areas.

His reports from areas devastated by disaster have brought clarity and human context to many situations. He received two Emmy awards for his reports on the earthquake in Haiti and contributed to the network’s Peabody Award-winning coverage of the BP oil disaster and Hurricane Katrina.

Gupta is the author of several best-selling books, including “Chasing Life” and “Cheating Death.”

Tickets for Gupta’s talk range from $42 to $24. Contributing series sponsors United University Professions (UUP) and TIAA-CREF, along with the UB Alumni Association and the UB Office of Donor Relations, are offering discount vouchers that provide significant cost savings on ticket purchases.
