BrainLAB Community Neurosurgery Award
To make the Section on Tumors more relevant to community brain tumor neurosurgeons, the section will introduce a new award at the 2006 CNS Annual Meeting. The BrainLAB Community Neurosurgery Award will be given to a neurosurgeon practicing in a nonacademic setting who submits the best abstract related to central nervous system tumors.
On behalf of the section, Ronald E. Warnick, MD thanks BrainLAB for their support of this new initiative. The section also thanks Jeffrey Bruce, MD, FACS (Awards Subcommittee chairman), for his efforts to recognize the scholarly work of community based brain tumor neurosurgeons.
Watch for more information about this award in the fall.
