Ben Harris '85 and his friend Scott Haren were featured in a recent American Public Media story and podcast.

The two men met in a support group for people living with Lou Gherig's disease (also known as ALS) and together began investigating alternative and off-label treatments for ALS. Harris and Haren describe their do-it-yourself approach to making their own medicine and attempting to slow the progression of the disease.

In the American Public Media story, Haren voices the words of Harris, who types them onto a computer because he no longer can speak. Listen to the podcast here.
