DRIVE podcast: Dr. Sanjay Gupta on his family’s roots with Ford and following your passion

Jan 10, 2024

Dr. Sanjay Gupta is known for many things: a successful career as a neurosurgeon, being the chief medical correspondent for CNN, and being one of the key drivers of the democratization of information around medicine and health in the media landscape.

Less known are his deep ties to the Ford family. Both his parents were engineers at Ford.

So, it’s no surprise that Dr. Gupta would accept an invitation to sit down with CEO Jim Farley for the premiere episode of the DRIVE podcast’s second season. In their conversation, they discuss Dr. Gupta’s background, his family’s relationship with Ford, and how they’re navigating a path through a highly accelerated future.
