Dr. Ann Beeder, associate professor of clinical public health, was appointed medical director of the Vincent P. Dole Institute for Opiate Dependency Disorders of the Department of Public Health at Weill Cornell Medical College and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
Dr. Beeder, who joined the Medical College in 1993, is also associate
director of residency in addiction psychiatry, and medical director of
the Department of Public Health's Employee Assistance Program
Consortium - a program that serves the personnel in neighborhood health
and academic institutions.
Dr. Beeder received a medical degree from George Washington University
and completed her residency and fellowship at the Payne Whitney Clinic
of NewYork-Presbyterian. Board-certified in psychiatry and addiction
psychiatry, Dr. Beeder's research focuses on alcohol and substance
abuse, and novel therapies such as buprenorphine and office-based
methadone treatment for opioid dependency.
The opioid dependency treatment program was created by the merging of
the Adolescent Development Program and the Adult Services Program, both
of which Dr. Beeder served as interim director.
