Ed Bromfield, M.D. Obituary

Dr. Ed Bromfield

From AES President, Steven C. Schachter, M.D.:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is with great sorrow that I write to let you know that Ed Bromfield died recently. He had pancreatic cancer.

We all knew and loved Ed. He was a gentle giant in our field and touched us in many ways. He directed the epilepsy program at the Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston and was active in many aspects of AES. In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the care of patients with epilepsy he received the AES J. Kiffin Penry award in 2007. He was the camp doctor for many years at the Epilepsy Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island's summer camp.

He was an inspiration to everyone, especially in the way he approached living with cancer. We will miss him greatly and forever remember his friendship, his smile and laugh, and his courage.
