Dr. Cheryl Berger Israeloff, the primary physician at the Neuro Visual Center of New York, recently received an award from the Hauppauge Industrial Association of Long Island (HIA-LI), a longstanding business engine for regional economic development. Dr. Israeloff was recognized for her exemplary work in treating binocular vision dysfunction. HIA-LI provides a forum for business leaders to network, solve problems and obtain advice on critical issues that face their businesses.
Get Into the Head of the CEO’ Forum
Dr. Israeloff was invited to participate in a public business development forum, “Get Into the Head of the CEO,” on November 9, 2016, sponsored by HIA-LI. The forum helps members of the community connect with leading businesses that encourage innovative thinking and serve as examples of successful entrepreneurship. HIA-LI programs and events promote strategic partnerships, targeted networking, information sharing and business advocacy. Speakers at the event included Sal Ferro from Alure Home Improvements, Scott Maskin from SUNation Solar Systems, Dr. Israeloff, Sister Patricia Griffith from Mercy Haven, Inc., and Joe Campolo from Campolo, Middleton and McCormick, LLP.
Sponsors of the forum included Brendel’s Bagels and Eatery of New York, Campolo, Middleton and McCormick, LLP, Flexible Systems, People’s Alliance Federal Credit Union and Network Solutions and Technology.
HIA-LI members benefited from direct access to CEOs through the public Q and A. HIA-LI also provides members with access to educational programs, career resources, research capabilities, mentoring opportunities, business advisory services and frequent networking events.
Changing Lives Through Vision Correction
Every business starts with providing a solution to an existing problem. In the case of Dr. Israeloff, her practice at the Neuro Visual Center of New York addresses eye conditions such as binocular vision dysfunction that have been misdiagnosed for many years, leaving patients frustrated and in discomfort. Proper diagnosis through a neurovisual exam can result in effective eye strain treatment.
At the forum, Dr. Israeloff also explained how proper training, equipment and treatment are necessary to provide patients with the right diagnosis and eye strain treatment. Dr. Israeloff’s work in educating the public and addressing binocular vision dysfunction has had a life-changing impact on patients suffering from this condition.
Recognizing that patients who are domestic abuse victims may never get the help they need without advocacy and direct volunteering, Dr. Cheryl has recently begun volunteering with Brighter Tomorrows. This nonprofit agency provides shelter and a variety of services to survivors of domestic violence. She will be providing her services to clients from Suffolk and Nassau Counties, as well as the Five Boroughs and the Tri-State area.
