Dr. Jeffrey Backes was recently named one of central Ohio’s 40 Under 40 by Columbus Business First. This is the longest-running award program at Columbus Business First, and each year recognizes forty of the best and brightest young professionals in Central Ohio for their accomplishments in the area of business and community service. With a record 283 nominations in its 25th year running, the popular 40 Under 40 awards program proved to be the most-impressive yet. 

This year, Columbus Business First asked its honorees “What does a day in the life of a 40 Under 40 honoree look like?” For Dr. Backes, its simple, caring for his patients and his family. Here are some photos from “A Day in the Life” of Dr. Backes.

A celebration dinner and awards program was held on Thursday, May 25, and honorees were highlighted in a special supplement published in the May 26, 2015, issue of Business First.


Congratulations, Dr. Backes. The honor is well deserved!
