Dr. Sanjay Gupta

Millions of loyal viewers follow and know him as Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the multiple Emmy Award-winning Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN, and the go-to authority for major developments in medicine, personal health, and health care.

Dr. Gupta is a practicing neurosurgeon at the Emory Clinic and the Associate Chief of Neurosurgery at Grady Memorial Hospital. Gupta is a dedicated global journalist who is passionate about inspiring Americans to lead healthier, more active lives. He hosts the CNN Original Series Chasing Life with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, which follows Gupta’s travels around the world in search of the secret to living longer, healthier, and happier.

Since 2001, Gupta has reported from nearly every war zone and natural disaster in the world, from the conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, and the middle east to the earthquake in Haiti, tsunami in Japan and hurricane in Puerto Rico, to name a few. As one of the first doctors to arrive in these disaster areas, Gupta is often asked to provide medical assistance, which he has done all over the world – including five battlefield brain operations in Iraq.

As America’s favorite frontline Covid-19 health journalist, on March 9, 2020, Dr. Sanjay Gupta was the first to pen 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. His book, World War C: Lessons from the Covid-19 Pandemic and How to Prepare for the Next One was called the “must-read book about COVID-19,” and his previous publication, Keep Sharp: Build a Better Brain at Any Age, was an instant best-seller and has recently been developed as a guided program, 12 Weeks to a Sharper You.
