Bestselling author, Dr. David Fajgenbaum, shares his story and takes questions during this most unique session
Join us on April 28 for a special event with Dr. David Fajgenbaum, a Wharton alum (WG'15) as well as graduate of Georgetown University, University of Oxford and the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. He is a groundbreaking physician-scientist spearheading an international effort to identify COVID19 treatments, and author of the national bestselling memoir, Chasing My Cure: A Doctor's Race to Turn Hope Into Action.
Profiled in the New York Times as the 'doctor who cured himself' (Doctor Cure Thyself, NY Times), David went from being a beast-like college Quarterback to receiving his last rites while in medical school and nearly dying four more times battling Castleman disease. To try to save his own life, he spearheaded an innovative, Wharton-inspired approach to research and discovered a treatment that is saving his life and others. Now, he is spreading this approach to other diseases as one of the youngest individuals ever named to the faculty at Penn Medicine and leading an international effort in partnership with the FDA and Google Health to identify treatments for COVID19.
**Dr. Fajgenbaum has made a special offer in which he is making hand-signed books from his private stash available to our Club! See below for how to purchase one.
Join us for a brief talk and discussion with Dr. Fajgenbaum about his journey chasing his cure, his work to advance treatments for COVID19, and lessons about life, hope, and resilience from Chasing My Cure that are so relevant today. For more information, check out: https://chasingmycure.com/
