New Honor Your Mentor Fund: Christopher I. Shaffrey

The NREF established Honor Your Mentor (HYM) Funds in 2014 to celebrate the work, influence and mentoring of its neurosurgical peers. There are now 38 Honor Your Mentor (HYM) funds with pledges totaling over $4 million from 821 donors. A new HYM fund for Christopher I. Shaffrey will support research of spinal deformities.

Contributions to NREF support education and research to collaborate and advance the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders and improve patient care in neurosurgery.
