Rochester Institute of Technology has appointed the president and CEO of Rochester Regional Health, Dr. Eric Bieber, as the newest member of its board of trustees.
The appointment was announced at the July 9 meeting.
Bieber joined RRH in November 2014 from University Hospitals in Cleveland.
Bieber earned his medical degree from Loyola University’s Stritch School of Medicine after receiving a BA in biology from Illinois Wesleyan University and an MS in microbiology from Illinois State University. He served his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Rush St. Luke’s Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago and completed a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology at University of Chicago.
