  • Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
Edward I Bender
I entered medicine to help others live healthier lives, and I was drawn to child psychiatry because of the unique opportunity to make a life-long difference, and empower both youth and their families. I have found that understanding and compassion amidst suffering is possibly one of the most powerful treatments we have in medicine. Outside the clinic, I enjoy trail running, singing, music of all types, vegetable gardening, barbequing, and doing almost anything with my family.
