Individual Donor Recognition

The Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation Recognizes 2020-2021 Donors

Each year, the NREF conducts a charitable campaign to raise funds for research, education and outcomes studies in neurosurgery. These areas are vital to the advancement of neurosurgery.

The NREF fiscal year is from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021. The Board of Directors of the NREF is grateful for the support of donors whose contributions support research and education that enhance and confirm the critical role neurosurgeons play in improving lives.

#WhyIGive

I give to NREF to improve the care I can offer my patients. I give to NREF to help expand the scientific curiosity of the best and brightest young physicians. I give to NREF to advance the science and understanding of nature that we all need to know. I give to NREF because I love my profession. Please, give to NREF — for your patients, for the future, and for neurosurgery.

Gary M. Bloomgarden, MD, FAANS, past NREF Board Secretary and Cushing Circle of Giving Member
