As a philanthropist, Dr. Bedrossian helped establish scholarships at UDHS and Temple Medical School.  After the 2010 earthquake, he traveled to teach eye surgeons in Haiti and performed humanitarian eye surgery in the Dominican Republic. Dr. Bedrossian’s greatest accomplishment, however, came when he became a father to Teddy, a medically fragile special needs child with end stage kidney disease. After his son passed away in 2007 from the chronic illness, Dr. Bedrossian combined his love for skiing and philanthropy by founding the “Annual Teddy Bedrossian Ski-a-Thon”, to raise funds.
