TV Star And Beloved Health Guru Dr. Oz Will Speak At IGNITION

Mehmet Oz

Dubbed “one of the most accomplished cardiothoracic surgeons of his generation,” in a New York Times profile, Dr. Mehmet Oz is a lauded doctor.

But what’s made him a household name is his persona as the friendly, un-squeamish guest doctor on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which led him to host his own daytime spot, “The Dr. Oz Show.”

In 2010, he added “Web entrepreneur” to his list of titles when he co-launched Sharecare, an online interactive platform to help connect consumers to high-quality health information.

This year he also debuted “NY Med,” a reality show that follows the surgeon at two New York hospitals.

Dr. Oz will share his perspectives at Business Insider’s IGNITION: Future of Digital conference this November 27-28, 2012, in New York.
