Longstanding Psychiatry Department Clinicians Retire

Wednesday, October 21, 2015



2015 saw the retirement of two of the Department of Psychiatry’s most valued team members, Betsy Hradek, ARNP, and Liz Schacht, PhD, ARNP. Hradek served as Team Leader for UI Hospitals and Clinics’ IMPACT (Integrated Multidisciplinary Program of Assertive Community Treatment) program upon retiring, having remained with the Department of Psychiatry for close to 40 years. Schacht played an integral role with the STEPPS (Systems Training for Emotional Predictability and Problem Solving) program at the time of her retirement, serving the department for 36 years. We wish them well and thank them for their decades of service!
