Born in Bratislava and educated in Prague, Dr. Jander came to the United States at the age of 24 for her residency at Boston University. She and her husband later moved to Ithaca, where she juggled parenting four children with practicing medicine at local nursing and assisted living facilities. Many in the community know Dr. Jander through her work at Primary Care Internal Medicine of Ithaca, where she continues to attend to her patients.
