Over the course of the last three decades, Dr. Edward Jacobson has focused his professional practice on helping women lead the healthiest, most fulfilling lives possible by providing state-of-the-art gynecological care, hormone replacement therapies and surgical interventions.
This patient-centered philosophy has not only contributed to Dr. Jacobson’s personal success but has also inspired him to encourage others in the pursuit and development of wellness strategies across all segments of society.
Having witnessed first-hand the benefits of healthy habits on the daily experiences and medical outcomes of a broad array of patients, Dr. Jacobson is passionate about fostering greater public awareness of sound nutrition, regular physical activity, and preventive health care initiatives.
As a corollary to the above priorities, Greenwich Gynecology LLC is proud to announce the establishment of the Dr. Edward Jacobson Healthy Living Scholarship. Pursuant to this initiative, a financial grant in the amount of $500 will be awarded each year to a higher education student who demonstrates an extraordinary level of commitment to health and wellness on both a personal and a community-wide basis.
