Atlantic County Institute of Technology honored Dr. Edwin Lopez-Bernard, a pediatrician with offices in Galloway, who is also an ACIT shared-time alumnus and a graduate of Atlantic City High School.
Dr. Lopez-Bernard began his post-secondary education with a scholarship to what is now Atlantic Cape Community College and continued his studies at Stockton University before graduating from Ross University School of Medicine.
While pursuing his medical education, he worked as a phlebotomy technician and a physician’s assistant in both private practice and in the Air National Guard for the 177th Fighter Interceptor Group.
“Dr. Lopez-Bernard is a highly-regarded member of the medical community in Atlantic County, where his roots are deep and compassion and consideration for strengthening the community are paramount to his work, both in the medical professional and through service,” said ACIT superintendent Dr. Philip Guenther.
He has served on ACIT’s Health Sciences advisory board for the last five years and has made significant contributions to the district’s health sciences programs of study and the structured learning experiences provided to students through on-site internships and mentoring.
