Council of State Neurosurgical Societies
The CSNS has launched a matching campaign in support of the Lyal G. Leibrock Honor Your Mentor Fund. The fund was created in 2016 to contribute funds for medical students, residents and young neurosurgeons for socio-economic education.
Dr. Leibrock believed that the future is in the hands of young neurosurgeons and it is the responsibility of the older generations to train, coach and be mentors. So, along with Dr. David Jimenez, he created the CSNS Resident Socio-Economic Fellowship.
This fellowship funds 12 neurosurgical residents (three from each geographic quadrant), plus one military resident for one year. They are mentored by a CSNS delegate, participate in research projects, on standing committees and the Resolution Process, write for publications and have the opportunity to apply for a Washington Committee Fellowship. Over 100 fellows have been trained since the beginning of the program.
While the program has been immensely successful, it remains vulnerable to fluctuations in funding.
A gift to an Honor Your Mentor Fund will help blaze a trail of advancements in the field.
Maximize the impact of your donation AND enter to win! For every $500 donated to the NREF between now and December 31, 2018, you will receive one entry to win a sunset cruise for ten on the luxurious Bavaria yacht in San Diego, on Saturday, April 13, during the 2019 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting.
Be the spark that lights the path for the next generation of neurosurgeons.
