Dr. Lance FoganFrom Neurologist to PageTurner Press and Media Author
Life brought many surprising twists and turns to Dr. Lance Fogan. Long before becoming a neurologist and professor of neurology, he took up anthropology and linguistics at the State University of New York at Buffalo. An after-school job at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo influenced him to take up medicine, and later, he took up neurology as his specialty.
Before becoming a PageTurner Press and Media author, Dr. Fogan has worked at various institutions, including Kaiser Permanente in Medical Center in Southern California as a general clinical neurologist, a position he held until his retirement in 1997. He has also taught as a clinical professor of neurology at the UCLA School of Medicine.
Dr. Fogan was awarded the American Academy of Neurology History Prize for his paper “The Neurology in Shakespeare.” He is also an active champion of epilepsy awareness and shares his knowledge of the illness through blogs and on social media. His family drama novel Dings touches upon epilepsy and how the disorder changes people’s lives.
