CNN Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta to Speak at Bunker Hill Community College

BOSTON, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN chief medical correspondent, author and neurosurgeon, will open the 2009-2010 Bunker Hill Community College "Compelling Conversations" speaker series. Gupta will speak at 1 p.m., Tuesday, October 27, 2009, in the A300 auditorium.

A leader in the national dialogue on healthcare, Dr. Gupta contributes frequent stories to the CNN television shows "American Morning" and "House Call with Sanjay Gupta." Based in Atlanta, GA, he teaches medicine at Emory University, writes a column for Time magazine and produces "Paging Dr. Gupta," a weekly podcast on health issues. Dr. Gupta grew up in Michigan, where his parents were engineers in the automobile industry. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his M.D. from the University of Michigan Medical School. In 1997, he won a White House Fellowship and worked for then-First Lady Hillary Clinton.

In January 2009, Dr. Gupta was offered the job of U.S. Surgeon General.

Dr. Gupta's book, Chasing Life: New Discoveries in the Search for Immortality to Help You Age Less Today, was published in 2008 and immediately became a bestseller. His new book, titled Cheating Death, has been reviewed by noted celebrities such as renowned athlete Lance Armstrong. This work deals with cases of individuals who fought tremendous medical odds to "cheat death."

BHCC's "Compelling Conversations" speaker series has brought both national and international intellectual celebrities to its campus. Past speakers have included journalist and political commentator Juan Williams, best-selling author Bob Woodward, and women's rights activist Gloria Steinem.
