It can be hard enough to cure a serious disease when you know what it is. But too often, people are sick and neither they nor their doctors have any idea what’s going on. That’s where Dr. William Gahl comes in. He is one of America’s leading medical detectives. He specializes in the mysterious.
Dr. Gahl is founding director of the Undiagnosed Diseases Program at the National Institutes of Health. He’s also a finalist for a Service to America Medal, and joined the Federal Drive to talk about his career.
Tom Temin is the host of The Federal Drive, 6 a.m.-10 a.m. on 1500 AM in the Washington, D.C. region and online everywhere.
