The board of directors of Brain Support Nola gathered at the LSU Foundation to present a $10,000 check to the Robert C. Dawson Lectureship in Brain Aneurysm Fund. The amount represents the proceeds after expenses from the nonprofit’s 10th annual Aces Against Aneurysms Tennis Tournament held in May.
Brain Support Nola established the Robert C. Dawson Brain Aneurysm Lectureship Fund to honor the noted interventional neuro-radiologist who is on the faculty of LSU Neurosurgery in New Orleans and Culicchia Neurological. Dr. Dawson has decades of experience treating brain aneurysms with minimally invasive therapies. Founder Rebecca Winchell survived an aneurysm 10 years ago.
