|Katie Couric - A Woman's Journey Baltimore 2013 Plenary Speaker|
Award-winning journalist, best-selling author, well known cancer advocate and talk show host Katie Couric will be the keynote speaker at the Johns Hopkins’ 19th annual A Woman’s Journey symposium taking place on Saturday, Nov. 16.
Couric will speak about how cancer changed her life and led to a personal commitment to advocate for colon cancer screening and to raise badly needed funds for cancer research. An award-winning journalist, former co-anchor of the Today Show and now host of the syndicated daytime daily talk show Katie, she co-founded the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance (NCCRA) with the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) in 2000, and also helped establish the Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health, named for her late husband, at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical College. In 2008, Katie was one of nine co-founders of Stand Up To Cancer, an EIF initiative uniting Hollywood and the public in the effort to raise money for accelerated cancer research.
Couric is the New York Times best-selling author of The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons from Extraordinary Lives. She joined the Disney/ABC Television Group in summer 2011 and serves as special correspondent for ABC News, contributing to ABC World News, Nightline, 20/20, Good Morning America, This Week, and primetime news specials.
A Woman’s Journey will offer 32 seminars—all taught by Hopkins physicians and scientists. Women hear firsthand about advances in medicine from researchers in an array of medical specialties. This one-of-a-kind program attracts mothers, daughters, sisters and friends who come to learn from Hopkins experts and from each other.
Symposium topics include preserving memory, antioxidants, strategies to prevent heart disease and cancer.
