Lucy Young, Retired Physician, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the medical profession.

After more than 35 years of experience as a medical professional, Dr. Young retired as an accomplished and esteemed physician. She is proud to have dedicated much of her life to improving the lives of others, never shying away from the work ethic and focus it took to achieve success. She studied at Wheaton College in Illinois, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in chemistry in 1965, and originally planned to become a nurse. She decided to pursue medical school after her professors recognized her potential and told her that she would make an excellent doctor. In this respect, she earned an MD from Ohio State University in 1969.

Dr. Young started as a rotating intern at Riverside Methodist Hospital, then became a resident at Trumbull Memorial Hospital before starting her family medicine practice in 1973. She co-founded and acted as the director of the Wholistic Health Center of Mendota until 1978, and started as assistant medical director of the Great Lakes Head Office for Metropolitan Life Insurance Colorado. Dr. Young worked as the medical director of Commonwealth Life Insurance Company until 1985 and served as a locum tenens physician at Kron Medical Corp. of Chapel Hill, North Carolina until 1989. From 1990 until her retirement in 2006, she worked as a family practice floater at Ochsner Clinic Satellites in New Orleans.

While studying for her undergraduate degree, Dr. Young worked both part-time and full-time in order to finance her education, only taking time off once she started medical school. Without enough time to work and attend school at the same time, she took out loans and is proud of where she was able to take her career and the people she was able to help as a result. Dr. Young is a diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice and the Board of Insurance Medicine, and over the course of her career, she volunteered her free time at various institutions, including the Red Bird Medical Center and the H.O.P.E. Clinic Crisis Pregnancy Center.

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Young served as faculty preceptor at the Louisiana State University School of Medicine and the University of Louisville Family Practice Department. She worked from 1976 to 1979 as an associate professor at the University of Illinois Abraham Lincoln School of Medicine. As a testament to her success, experience, and stature as a physician, she has been featured in the first edition of Who’s Who of Emerging Leaders in America, the 11th edition of Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, as well as multiple editions of Who’s Who of American Women, Who’s Who in the South and Southwest, Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in Medicine and Healthcare, and Who’s Who in America.
