More than 120 people attended the 8th Annual Lab Party, founded by UCLA supporter Kate Berg, to raise vital funds for UCLA neurosurgery research and education.
Held on September 19, 2019, the event included an update on the UCLA Steve Tisch BrainSPORT Program, interactive stations with concussion goggles that simulate the effects of a traumatic brain injury and demonstrations of post-concussion breathing techniques.
UCLA neurosurgeons Drs. Aria Fallah and Won Kim (MD ’09, RES ’16, FEL ’16) gave a presentation about their work on hydrocephalus, a buildup of fluid in the brain, and the department’s goal to conduct annual mission trips to provide health care to underresourced areas.
Proceeds from this year’s event will fully fund a future international mission trip led by Drs. Fallah and Kim. “The junior faculty presentations are so compelling and fun,” Berg said. “I’m extremely proud of the community we’ve built around Lab Party.”
