Pittsburgh, February 20, 2020 -- PGY-6 residents Nitin Agarwal, MD, and Daniel Tonetti, MD, have both been awarded travel exchange grants to attend European Association of Neurosurgical Societies (EANS) training courses in 2020.

The awards are part of a collaboration among the EANS, the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) and the Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF) to provide AANS residents the opportunity to further their neurosurgical knowledge and forge friendships among their European counterparts.

Dr. Tonetti will be attending the vascular training course in Lake Geneva-Evian, France, May 10-13, while Dr. Agarwal will be attending the spine training course in Iasi, Romania, September 13-16.
