For nearly four decades, Dr. Edward Anselm has been a leader in the development of clinical, classroom, and communitywide strategies in tobacco use prevention as well as smoking cessation and relapse prevention. He serves as a medical director for Aetna and is also clinical assistant professor of medicine at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where the course he developed on smoking cessation became part of the curriculum for all third-year medical students. A 1982 graduate of the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, the Chicago Medical School, Dr. Anselm completed an internal medicine residency at Montefiore Medical Center. He began his career leading internal medicine and occupational medicine clinics before serving as chief medical officer at several health plans in New York.
