Meliora, Eastman weekends to draw noted guests

“Medical information is plentiful—but medical knowledge is different,” says neurosurgeon Sanjay Gupta. “It’s information that is contextualized, credible, and memorable.”

As the chief medical correspondent for health and medicine at CNN, it’s Gupta’s job to convey such knowledge.

“Whenever there’s something I want to explain to people, it’s imperative to me to understand it myself. Only then can I really teach it.”

Gupta will be a keynote speaker at Meliora Weekend, October 14–17, discussing medicine and the media. He’ll also participate in this year’s Presidential Symposium on the future of health care.

Alumni, parents, students, faculty, and friends are invited to the myriad programs and performances at Meliora Weekend, the University’s annual reunion, homecoming, and family weekend, and also its companion celebration at the Eastman School, Eastman Weekend. In addition to performances, tours of the newly renovated Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, and reunion activities, Eastman Weekend will feature a conversation, concert, and master class with jazz legend Ron Carter ’59E.

Registration is now open for both events. Full details are available at www.rochester.edu/melioraweekend and www.esm.rochester.edu/alumni/weekend.
