'This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018.

Lara Kollab's posts were brought to light by the Canary Mission, an organization aimed at exposing individuals and organizations that promote hate against Jews, Israel, and the US, mainly on college campuses.

On Wednesday, the Cleveland Clinic acknowledged in a statement that it had disciplined a resident, but did not refer to Kollab by name. "In addition, there have been no reports of any patient harm related to her work".

In January 2012, when Kollab was a medical student, she posted on social media saying she will "purposely give all the yahood [Jews] the wrong meds".

"Look, Haifa is sweet (nice), but it's full of Jewish dogs, and it looks like America, meaning, it wasn't that special to me", Canary Mission alleges she wrote.

According to the Canary Mission, Kollab's posts called for violence against Jews, defended Hamas, trivialized the Holocaust and repeatedly compared Israel to Nazi Germany.

Prices rise as the minimum wage increases in several states
Up until a few decades ago, many economists anxious that raising the minimum wage would lead to employers hiring fewer workers. Millions of American workers will see pay raises in the new year due to minimum-wage increases in 20 states and 21 cities.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Clinic took to their official website last December 31 where they confirmed that Kollab, a supervised resident at their hospital from July to September 2018, was no longer employed.

She worked as a supervised first-year resident from July until September of 2018. The clinic added that the doctor's beliefs "in no way" reflected those of the hospital.

Citing a series of tweets screen-grabbed by the Canary Mission website, Times of Israel said the 27-year-old had been making anti-Semitic comments on social media from 2011 to 2017. "We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system", the Cleveland Clinic said in a statement posted online. Additionally, later that year she said that the Holocaust had been "exaggerated". The hospital did not state, however, whether Kollab had been let go as a direct result of her tweets.

According to the state of OH, her medical license was issued in July 2018 and won't expire until June 2021.

According to her LinkedIn page that Canary Mission documented before it was deleted, Kollab went to medical school at the Jewish-founded Touro College in New York City.

Originally from suburban Westlake, Kollab posted on Twitter under the alias of "Elle Kay" that officials believe represent her initials.
