Dr. Lisa Yablon, daughter of Marilyn and Michael Meyer, and a former student of Carmel School, was recently selected by her peers as a “Rising Star” in the 2018 edition of the New York Times Magazine’s list of “Super Doctors”.

Super Doctors is a listing of outstanding doctors from more than 40 medical specialties who have attained a high degree of peer recognition or professional achievement.

Each year Super Doctors invites doctors to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field.  They are asked to consider the following question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following specialities, which doctor would you choose?”

Candidates are evaluated on 10 indicators of professional achievement.  No more than 2.5 percent of those who are nominated are named to the Rising Stars list which is restricted to doctors who have been in practise for 10 years or less.

Lisa is a neurologist with Fellowship training in Headache Medicine. After graduating from Medical School at the University of Western Australia, she immigrated to New York.  Lisa completed her neurology residency at Beth Israel Medical Centre, the Manhattan teaching hospital of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, during which she received the Albert Einstein College of Medicine Teaching Award for excellence and dedication to teaching medical students.  Lisa then went on to do a Fellowship in Headache Medicine at Roosevelt Hospital, New York.  She now works in Manhattan and lives with her husband and four young children in New Jersey.

Lisa has performed research on various aspects of migraine including publications in the journal Headache and book chapters on headaches and migraines. She takes a special interest in migraines in pregnancy.

Mazel Tov to Dr Yablon from all of the Carmel School Community on this superb achievement.
