Speaker: Nancy Snyderman is an American physician, author, and former broadcast journalist. For almost three decades, she has combined her experience as a head and neck cancer surgeon, network television correspondent and advisor to Fortune 500 corporations, and is one of the most trusted voices in medical communication. As former chief medical correspondent for NBC News and a medical journalist for ABC News (from 2006 to 2015), she traveled the world extensively and has reported from some of the world’s most troubled areas. Her reporting garnered her some of the industry’s most distinguished honors including Emmy, DuPont, Edward R. Murrow and Gracie awards. She is also a New York Times bestselling author, having written five books.

Dr. Snyderman completed medical school at the University of Nebraska Medical School and went on to become one of the first women in the country to specialize in Head and Neck Surgery. She recently joined Stanford as a Consulting Professor for Global Health in the School of Medicine and co-founded the Stanford-NBC News Global Media Fellowship (now the Stanford-ABC News Global Health & Media Fellowship). She is also a Consulting Professor of Medical Communication in the School of Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Description: As part of the Conversations in Global Health seminar series, Snyderman will talk with communications director Paul Costello and the Stanford community about her 25 years in journalism covering global health and medicine and how physicians can convey global-health messages more effectively.
