Gupta Headed To CRS


CNN correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta will be a featured speaker at the upcoming 2013 Country Radio Seminar. Executive Director Bill Mayne says, “CRS is more than just a convention for the Country radio and music industry. Over the past few years we have expanded our efforts to include agenda topics that appeal to our attendees beyond the scope of Country radio exclusively. This year, we are excited to welcome Dr. Sanjay Gupta, who is an award-winning journalist with CNN and a highly respected professional in the medical field.”

Gupta will address CRS attendees on Friday morning, March 1, from 9 – 9:50 a.m. CT. CRS is spotlighting one featured speaker each day during the three-day seminar, held in Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 27 – March 1. Speakers for Wednesday and Thursday will be announced in the coming weeks.

As part of its efforts to raise awareness about important health issues, Country Radio Seminar is offering a free heart test at CRS, courtesy of Cleveland HeartLab. Inflammation Testing (“IT”) will be available for the first 500 CRS attendees who visit the Cleveland HeartLab Screening Suite, located inside the Nashville Convention Center.  The IT blood test (no fasting required) provides more in-depth information about heart health beyond normal cholesterol testing. The Screening Suite will be open daily at CRS from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., or until 500 tests have been administered.

The Cleveland HeartLab is also delivering a presentation titled “Your Heart and the Health of our Industry” at CRS on Friday, March 1, at 3 p.m. CT.
