Medical correspondents don't come much more qualified than Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The Michigander is an author, MD and host for CNN. He notably turned down an offer from the Obama administration to become surgeon general. He's had his fair share of critics, including filmmaker Michael Moore. But seriously, let's get real. The dude is a practicing neurosurgeon, and more than once, he's leapt into action to save someone's life while in the course of reporting a story in, say, Iraq or immediately after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. I suppose Gupta's actions could be seen as some sort of violation of journalistic neutrality and blah-blah-blah.

Whatever. I bet he'll have an interesting lecture in store. It's going to be about "the intersection of media and medicine," according to the Clinton School of Public Service. It's part of the Frank and Kula Kumpuris Distinguished Lecture Series.
