This month, there are three new Honor Your Mentor (HYM) funds. The fund honoring Robert E. Harbaugh supports rigorous research in registry-based clinical research in neurosurgery, Warren R. Selman’s fund supports clinical and basic science research and training in the field of cerebrovascular neurosurgery, and the HYM honoring Thoralf M. Sundt, Jr.  funds education and research within the Mayo Clinic Residency Program. The NREF established Honor Your Mentor (HYM) Funds in 2014 to celebrate the work, influence and mentoring of its neurosurgical peers. There are now 45 HYM funds with pledges totaling over $4.4 million from 1,007 donors.
