Rick Bedlack, MD, PhD, shows off his outrageous wardrobe and talks about his life's passion of helping people with ALS, in a new video from Duke Health. Opening with a new blue cornflower tie meant as a tribute to Jeff Capel, Jr., father of Duke Associate Head Coach Jeff Capel III, as well as other patients with ALS, Bedlack talks about how he chose to wear bright patterns, colors and styles to help brighten the day for ALS patients, and how patients with this debilitating disease are incredibly resilient.
