Schaumburg, IL, October 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- On Saturday, October 19, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) will officially launch the new CNS Foundation, Inc. during the 2013 CNS Annual Meeting in San Francisco. The CNS Foundation supports the creation and dissemination of neurosurgical practice guidelines, and promotion of domestic and international educational programs that enhance quality neurosurgical care.
“The CNS Foundation was created because leaders from the CNS recognized a need to expand international education for neurosurgeons, as well as guidelines development and dissemination efforts right here in the U.S.,” said Foundation President, Christopher E. Wolfla, MD. “The Foundation will help the CNS achieve its mission of enhancing health worldwide by funding critical initiatives in these areas with the ultimate aim of improving the quality and outcomes of neurosurgical care around the world.”
The CNS Foundation was established in late 2012 and began collecting donations earlier this year. Members and companies who make a donation to the Foundation leading up to and during the Annual Meeting will be recognized as Foundation Launch Donors during the meeting. The Foundation will also hold a launch drawing for any members and attendees visiting the CNS Foundation booth in San Francisco with a chance to win neurosurgical texts and subscriptions to CNS educational resources.
