KIPP Academy Lynn volunteer (since 2007) receives “honorable menschion” in The Jewish Journal. Ralph Epstein rose from modest roots in Malden to become one of the area’s leading pulmonologists and emergency room doctors. Epstein, who is now 78, was one of four children born to Ida and Hyman Epstein. He won a scholarship to Williams College, studied medicine at Tufts Medical School, and practiced medicine for over 46 years in the Greater Boston area. Epstein and his wife, Linda, live in Danvers; he is the father of three children, two step-children, and has five grandchildren. He retired two years ago, and along with being an Uber driver for his grandsons, he is still active with the young men he has been a mentor for through KIPP Academy Lynn.
