Yashon Award Winners
OSU Professor of Surgery Dr. Robert Ruberg presented this year’s Yashon Awards to the University’s newest College of Medicine graduates: Dr. Kelly Mizraji and Dr. Ezra Lyon. Both are Alpha Omega Alpha high achievers. AOA is to medicine what Phi Beta Kappa is to letters and the humanities. Dr. Lyon is heading off for a residency in Family Medicine. Dr. Mizraji will be doing an OB/GYN residency. The David Yashon Phi Delta Epsilon Fund provides a generous financial award to launch the careers of Jewish OSU College of Medicine AOA graduates. Dr. Yashon, who passed away last November, was a professor at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and author of books on spinal injury, tumors affecting the nervous system, and vignettes about the College of Medicine at OSU.
