David Fryburg M.D.

David Fryburg, M.D., is a physician, a scientist, and a self-described nerd who wants to help people achieve a better and more meaningful life. In 2014, with his son Jesse, David co-founded Envision Kindness, a novel non-profit that promotes kindness, compassion, joy, and love through images crowdsourced from around the world. As he dug deeper, the science behind why kindness is so important made itself known. It is through this blog that his alter ego, Prof K, shares these learnings and puts a scientific face on the ancient wisdom “it is better to give than receive.”
