       Overview
      Dr. Schroeder is Distinguished Professor of Health and Health Care, Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine, UCSF, where he also heads the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center . The Center, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the American Legacy Foundation, works with leaders of more than 50 American health professional organizations and health care institutions to increase the cessation rate for smokers. It has expanded the types of clinician groups that support cessation, developed an alternative cessation message ( Ask, Advise, Refer ), created new ways to market toll-free telephone quit lines, and engaged the mental health treatment community for the first time. Between 1990 and 2002 he was President and CEO, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. During that time the Foundation made grant expenditures of almost $4 billion in pursuit of its mission of improving the health and health care of all Americans. It developed new programs in substance abuse prevention and treatment, care at the end of life, and health insurance expansion for children, among others.

      Dr. Schroeder graduated with honors from Stanford University and Harvard Medical School , and trained in internal medicine at the Harvard Medical Service of Boston City Hospital and in epidemiology as an EIS Officer of the CDC. He held faculty appointments at Harvard, George Washington, and UCSF. At both George Washington and UCSF he was founding medical director of a university-sponsored HMO, and at UCSF he founded its division of general internal medicine.

      He has published extensively in the fields of clinical medicine, health care financing and organization, prevention, public health, the work force, and tobacco control, with over 200 publications in peer reviewed journals.. He currently serves as a member of the editorial board of the New England Journal of Medicine , a director of the James Irvine Foundation, the Robina Foundation, the Lucille Packard Foundation for Children's Health, the Marin General Hospital, Scientific Review Committees at the Universities of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, and the Dean's Advisory Committee of the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. He formerly chaired the American Legacy Foundation, was a Council member and Chair of the Health Care Services Committee of the Institute of Medicine , an Overseer of Harvard, and President, the Harvard Medical Alumni Association. He has six honorary doctoral degrees and numerous awards. Schroeder lives in Tiburon, California with his wife Sally, a retired schoolteacher. Their two sons are physicians, one a cardiologist and one a pediatrician. Steve and Sally have four grandchildren.
