I am Dr. Sanjay Gupta, neurosurgeon and Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN. Ebola can be terrifying but when it comes to protecting ourselves and the world, knowledge is power. AMA!
Hey there redditors -- Sanjay here! I’m CNN’s chief medical correspondent, a practicing neurosurgeon, husband and father to 3 beautiful girls. This spring I had a chance to put on one of those space suits and see some of the bravest doctors I’ve ever met, treating Ebola patients in Conakry, Guinea. I’ve walked through the jungle not far from where this disease first emerged, and I’m on staff at Emory University Hospital where two Americans with Ebola are recuperating right now. I’ll be answering your questions. To confirm, I’m Dr_SanjayGupta on Reddit and @DrSanjayGupta on Twitter.
Time flies! unfortunately I have to get back to my day jobs. This has been a great discussion, really thought-provoking. I hope I could help to educate, and alleviate some fears. Hope to see you here again soon -- Sanjay
