Medicine and the Media with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent, CNN; Multiple Award-Winning Journalist, Author and Neurosurgeon

9:15 AM - 10:00 AM (EDT), Tuesday, June 15, 2021

Opening Remarks by Paul Hastings, Chief Executive Officer, Nkarta Therapeutics, Inc., Chair, BIO Board of Directors.

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 sorting fact from fiction when scientific information is rapidly changing as with the COVID-19 pandemic.
