The Trump administration announced Friday that the president would appoint 1986 Wharton MBA and School of Medicine graduate Mehmet Oz of “The Dr. Oz Show” to the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition.
Known often as “Dr. Oz,” Oz has entered into public discourse on numerous occasions as a result of controversial statements and alternative medicinal advice. In 2015, doctors from around the country called for Columbia University, where Oz is a professor, to fire Oz, citing his “disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine.”
