Anna Song Beeber PhD, RN is an Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing. She earned her BSN from Hartwick College and her MSN and PhD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Dr. Beeber's dissertation focused on how elders and their families enrolled in a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), a comprehensive community-based long-term care service for nursing home eligible elders, funded by the John A. Hartford Foundation Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Scholars Program, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (RO3 #R36 HS14697-01), Sigma Theta Tau (Xi Chapter), and the UPenn Hartford Center for Geriatric Nursing Excellence Frank Morgan Jones Fund. Dr. Beeber completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing, funded by the NINR Healthcare Quality and Patient Outcomes T32 (NR08856) Post-Doctoral Fellowship and the John A. Hartford Foundation Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Fellowship program. Using both qualitative and quantitative methods, Dr. Beeber's current work aims to describe the process of service use and the elder and family dyadic characteristics that predict community service use. With this work Dr. Beeber plans future work aimed at improving assessment for services as well as helping elders and families plan for long-term care. Dr. Beeber is currently working with Piedmont Health SeniorCare on the start-up of a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly in Caswell and Alamance Counties.
