Two new Honor Your Mentor (HYM) Funds have been established. The Sanjiv Bhatia Fund will fund an international pediatric neurosurgery and/or pediatric epilepsy surgery traveling fellowship and/or a Bhatia lectureship and/or pediatric neurosurgery medical missions. The Howard J. Silberstein Fund will promote resident attendance at national meetings and continued development of the University of Rochester Neurosurgery Cranial and Spine Lab.
