DR. FREDERICK B. GLASER AWARD

LEADERS IN THE FIELD OF ADDICTION MEDICINE

This award was developed to honor one of the pioneers of Addiction Medicine in North Carolina. Dr. Frederick Glaser demonstrated a commitment to this field of medicine from early in his career.

He received his M.D. from Harvard University in 1959 and then served his residency at the U.S. Public Health Service Narcotics Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. Glaser went on to have a distinguished career in the field of substance abuse, including the study of opiates and alcohol.

He has held a variety of positions in the United States and Canada, serving as the director of the University of Michigan Substance Abuse Research Center from 1989 to 1994 before becoming Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Division on Substance Abuse at the East Carolina University School of Medicine.
