Speech Topics

In this presentation, CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta offers an accessible, data-packed answer to our biggest questions about Covid-19: What have we learned about this pandemic and how can we prepare for—or prevent—the next one? This speech is inspired by his latest book.

Inspired by Dr. Gupta’s recent book, this presentation enlightens audiences on how to keep their brains young, healthy, and sharp with a science-driven approach to protecting your mind from decline.

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.

Having reported from the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia and a post-9/11 New York City, Dr. Sanjay Gupta has been present at many key moments that have shaped who we are. In this presentation, Gupta shares with audiences his first-hand experience on the dangers and importance of reporting from locations where the health of thousands is at stake. Gupta contributed to CNN’s award-winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina, was on the ground in Haiti only hours after the earthquake, filed reports from Kuwait immediately after a low-flying missile hit a shopping mall there and served in Iraq as an embedded correspondent with the U.S. Navy’s medical unit, the “Devil Docs.”


Dr. Sanjay Gupta is the multiple journalism award-winning chief medical correspondent for CNN and host of the CNN podcast Chasing Life. Gupta, a practicing neurosurgeon, plays an integral role in CNN’s reporting on health and medical news for all of CNN’s shows domestically and internationally, and regularly contributes to CNN Digital.

Since 2001, Gupta has covered some of the most important health stories in the United States and around the world. On March 9, 2020, Gupta penned an op-ed announcing the network would refer to the novel coronavirus outbreak as a “pandemic,” ahead of the WHO and the CDC. Throughout 2020 into 2021, Gupta reaffirmed his role as a trusted guide to viewers worldwide on navigating between facts and fiction surrounding Covid-19 and the pandemic.

In addition to his work for CNN, Gupta is an associate professor of neurosurgery at Emory University Hospital and associate chief of neurosurgery at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. He serves as a diplomat of the American Board of Neurosurgery. And in 2019, Gupta was elected to the National Academy of Medicine, considered one of the highest honors in the medical field.

Gupta received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and a Doctorate of Medicine degree from the University of Michigan Medical School.


The standing ovation Dr. Sanjay Gupta received for his keynote address at NRPA’s Annual Conference was well deserved. Dr. Gupta was the most engaging and comprehensively informed speaker on the topic of health and wellness within our country that NRPA has had in the more than 50-year history of the event.
