Hon and Hollenbeck Named American Academy of Neurology Fellows
Larry Hollenbeck, MD, FAAN, and Sarah Hon, DO, FAAN, with Meritas Health Neurology recently were granted fellowship status in the American Academy of Neurology. Both physicians met the AAN’s stringent requirements including exemplary work, practice tenure, participation in research, achievement in neurosciences, along with demonstrated hospital leadership and community involvement.
Due to the rigorous nature of the year-long approval process, only a handful of physicians in the Kansas City metro area are neurology fellows and even fewer are primarily associated with community-based hospitals. “To have two physicians in the same group named fellows in the same year is quite an honor,” Dr. Hon said.
Dr. Hollenbeck agreed. “It’s an honor to be recognized by our peers and to know our hard work is seen as beneficial.”
