Dr. David Kern

David Kern is a professor of Occupational Medicine at Brown University. While working there he was hired to look into the illness of two workers atr a textile plant. His diagnosis was that they were suffering from a new disease, "Flock workers lung". He attempted to publish this information, but was threatened due to a non-disclosure agreement he had signed. He continued to publish and he was fired, and his unit disbanded.
