Perennial interviewee Jane Fonda will be the one asking the questions at tonight’s annual Empower Party benefit for Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential. In front of a sold-out crowd in the Georgia Aquarium ballroom, G-CAPP’s founder will interview CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta as the nonprofit advances its teen pregnancy prevention mission to include adolescent health and well being.
