Joan Lunden’s Speech Topics

  • Politics and the Media: How the Media Has Changed

    When Joan was host of Good Morning America, she never gave her opinion. For example, she was interviewing Tipper Gore (wife of ex-Vice President Al Gore) and rocker Frank Zappa. The topic was new music and how Tipper Gore said specific albums should be sold under the desk and not easily seen by younger kids. Frank Zappa, a famous rock star himself, was totally against that. When the interview was over, no one knew Joan’s opinion and that’s how she handled all interviews. Nowadays, it’s so different…depending on what you watch or read, you will usually get the opinions of the broadcaster or writer!

I would like you to know that Joan Lunden inspired one of the attendees at our Oncology Symposium to get her long overdue mammogram… lo and behold it was positive. She was an early stage but still need surgery [and treatment]. She is absolutely convinced that if she did not attend this symposium, she would not have gotten this exam… and who knows when she would have followed through. Joan makes a difference.

What other organizations say about Joan Lunden

I wanted to tell you how WONDERFUL Joan’s speech was yesterday! I am continuing to hear rave reviews from throughout our community, from healthcare professionals, cancer survivors, those currently in treatment and interested community members. She completely exceeded my expectations. I particularly enjoyed hearing about her 10 principles for happiness and all of the stories about her career trajectory as well as tips for working moms and work/life balance – very motivating for me as a working mom with a 5 and 7 year old. There were actually more men there than we expected and they thoroughly enjoyed it as much as the women!
