GLAZER, William M.

Dr. William Michael Glazer, died at home on Sunday, (June 24, 2013), surrounded by his family in Menemsha, Martha's Vineyard, MA. Dr. Glazer was born in Hartford, CT on March 31, 1947 to his parents Irma and Harry Glazer of Newington. He graduated from Newington High School in 1965. He graduated from Clark University in 1969, the University of Connecticut Medical School in 1973, and completed his residency in psychiatry at Yale University. After completing his residency, he went into private practice and was the President of Glazer Medical Solutions in Key West, FL and Menemsha, MA. He was a clinician, researcher, lecturer and consultant and had been involved with continuing medical education since he began on the faculty of the Departments of Psychiatry first at Yale University (1978-1994) then at Harvard University (1994-2006). His research and teaching has generated the publication of hundreds of papers, chapters and multimedia educational materials. He lectured nationally for over 25 years on themes related to the diagnosis, treatment and management of severe and persistent psychiatric illnesses. He was a recognized expert in the areas of schizophrenia, tardive dyskinesia, managed care, and psychopharmacology. He leaves behind his wife, Roseline; his children, Aaron, Hillary, and Jacob; daughters-in-law Dalia and Illana; and five grandchildren. He also leaves behind his father Harry of Newington, brother Dan and sister-in-law Paula of Lake Worth, FL. He was predeceased by his mother. Dr. Glazer was admired by many friends and colleagues both on the Vineyard and Connecticut, along with his patients for whom he cared very deeply.
