  • Overview

    The role of a physician-journalist reporting from the immediate aftermath of a disaster area is not easily defined, and poses both logistic challenges and ethical questions in caring for patients. Is media coverage of physician involvement in disasters altruistic or self-serving? Our guest Dr. Sanjay Gupta, a practicing neurosurgeon and chief medical correspondent for the Health, Medical & Wellness unit at CNN, was one of the first physician journalists to report from the earthquake in Haiti, and joins us to discuss balancing reporting as a journalist during a disaster and caring for patients. Is journalistic objectivity compromised when broadcast media feature live coverage of physicians treating patients? Hosted by Dr. Matthew Birnholz.
