ED Pic2.jpg
After a decades-long career as a pharmacist, Ed chose to "retire" by starting a free clinic.

 

Ed remained the Executive Director and driving force behind Willing Helpers from its inception in 2006 until his second retirement in early 2019.

 

We lost Ed to illness on September 9th, 2020, but his legacy lives on in all 6,000 lives he touched during his time at the clinic as well as the work we continue to do in his honor.
