Recognizing four New Cushing Circle of Giving Supporters for their Philanthropy

The Cushing Circle of Giving was established as a lifetime giving society to recognize donors who support research and education efforts that enhance and confirm the critical role neurosurgeons play in improving lives.

We extend our sincere thanks to the newest Cushing Circle members who have made a substantial commitment to the future of neurosurgery:

  • Owoicho Adogwa, MD
  • Angel Nickolov Boev, MD, FAANS
  • Ziya L. Gokaslan, MD, FAANS
  • John Kevin Ratliff, MD, FAANS

The Cushing Circle recognizes individual members and organizations with pledges or cumulative donations of $25,000 or more. All NREF donations made during your lifetime apply toward membership in the Cushing Circle. Pledges may be paid as a one-time contribution or over a period of years.

Be the spark that inspires the next generation of neurosurgeons.

Target your donation to the fund of your choice by selecting from over 80 funds for your donation, including 51 Honor Your Mentor Funds, QOD initiatives, the Van Wagenen Fellowship Fund as wells as education, research or outcomes in your subspecialty.
