Paul shares his journey of being in an iron lung for 70 years since the age of six.


The eClub of Innovation is honoured to have Dr Paul Alexander speak to us about his journey through his remarkable life. Since the age of 6 years old Paul has faced the changes brought about by being infected with Polio. He is one of last people to still rely on an iron lung to live his life. His remarkable story was captured in the book he wrote in 2020 "Three Minutes for a Dog - My Life in an Iron Lung"
