In December 2006, I received a Young Investigator Award at the 60th annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society (AES) in San Diego, California. The Young Investigator Award is given annually to the top epilepsy research projects at the AES meeting, selected from residents, attendings and research staff from neurology and neurosurgery departments around the world. I was blessed to be the only neurosurgeon honored with an award. Here I am beside the poster of my work.
On March 8, 2008, I was granted the honor of introducing the 4th annual Leonard Titrud Lecturer, Dr. Alexa Irene Canady, M.D. Dr. Canady finished neurosurgery residency at the University of Minnesota in 1981, and in 1984 became the first African-American female neurosurgeon. Her pioneering career and spirit have provided great inspiration for many people, including me. Here I am with Dr. Canady.
