Meet the Doctor Using Hyperfocus to Find His Own Cure

Meet the Doctor Using Hyperfocus to Find His Own Cure

Dr. David Fajgenbaum was diagnosed with a deadly disorder called Castleman Disease when he was in medical school. But instead of giving up, he used his ADHD superpower of hyperfocus (and his own body) to seek out a cure for the rare and under-researched disease that he was battling. Now, a decade later, his breakthrough research has resulted in treatments that are keeping him and others alive. Dr. Fajgenbaum is still looking for a cure today, and joins Ned to talk about his new memoir, Chasing My Cure: A Doctor’s Race to Turn Hope into Action.
