Patrick J. Kelly Lecture

 

On September 20th 2013 the Department of Neurosurgery held its inaugural Patrick J. Kelly Lecture. Dr. Kelly, Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery from 1998-2009, was in attendance. The department named its first honorary speaker as Dr. Fredric Meyer – Uilhlein Professor and Chair at the Department of Neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

This event was held in part by the generous contributions of the Abraham J. Gross estate. On behalf of the estate, Mrs. Alice Gross was there to mark the beginning of what is the Department’s preeminent annual lectureship.  This continues to be an annual event that brings some of the best neurosurgeons from around the country and the world to NYULH.  The following represents a list of our annual lecturers.
