Who is this path guy? He is our one and only Dr Ed Friedlander, Ringside Physician and Chairman, Dept. of Pathology, Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, KC MO. He is not only an educator, but also a citizen of the world. When searching the Internet, Dr Friedlander will come up page after page after page. On most every site the story is the same. Dr Friedlander was volunteering his time to help better this world. Whether the article was about him testifying in court to help the cause of justice to convict some scoundrel for some despicable act or it might be testifying in court to help an innocent person being wrongly accused. It might also just be, he was answering someone’s question concerning a particular illness, or commenting on the safety of amateur boxing. You would not guess in a hundred years that his hobbies are distance swimming, sky diving and working out. Way to go Doc.
Dr. Friedlander has been a friend of amateur boxing in the Kansas City area for several years and in 2008 he assisted our sport at 17 shows. Dr Friedlander was honored at the Gold’s Gym show on December 13. 2008 and was presented several awards on behalf of the Missouri Valley Local Boxing Committee, the Greater Kansas City Golden Gloves and the Gold’s Gym Boxing Club, for his continued service to amateur boxing and the youth of our community.
The next time you see Dr Friedlander at one of our boxing shows, take a minute to say hello and to thank him for all he does.
