'Vital Signs' launched its 2019 series in August and includes five 30-min episodes airing monthly with a final episode in December as Dr. Sanjay Gupta unearths the most important medical stories and the secrets for longer and more healthy living. In a new offering for 2019 'Vital Signs' will dedicate a segment in each episode for CNN's 'Live Longer' in which Dr. Gupta will examine how, through activities and practices, people around the world are living longer. Additionally, a series of digital stories will launch on CNN Health that helps users learn more about living a healthier life, based around key health issues that Dr. Gupta will explore in 'Vital Signs'.
