Dr.-Alice-M.-ForresterDr. Alice Forrest came to Clifford Beers as an intern 15 years ago.  She realized pretty quickly that the Clinic was a special place filled with folks who served children and their families with respect, integrity and compassion.  She feels honored to be the Executive Director of this very special institution, to guard their Centennial legacy, and to help grow and strengthen it for our next 100 years of leadership and service to the Greater New Haven Community.
