An Evening with Brett Lunger '67

An Evening with Brett Lunger '67

Wednesday, June 8, 2022

Starts at 8pm EDT

Register Here

 

Brett Lunger '67 is one of the few Americans to have competed at the highest levels of international motorsports.  He drove in Formula One from 1975 to 1978.  In 1975 he was teammate to world champion-to-be James Hunt.  In 1976, he was one of the drivers who stopped their race to drag Niki Lauda from his burning Ferrari during the German Grand Prix.  This promises to be a fascinating look back at racing in the 70s, a period when the risks were far higher than today (12 F1 drivers were killed racing during the decade).

Registration is via the link above.  Brett asks that you provide a brief summary of any motorsports or "hot car" experience you have.  You may send these to president@princetonaaa.org.

“Stereotactic Radiosurgery: A Transformation in Managing Neurologic Disease --- From Operating Room to Outpatient Treatment”

Speaker:  Navid Redjal, MD, Director, Neurosurgical Oncology Capital Institute for Neurosciences, Capital Health

 

Stereotactic radiosurgery, the ability to precisely target lesions with focused radiation beams, is advancing the treatment of neurologic disease. Complex lesions deep within the brain, which once required high-risk surgeries, can now be treated in a non-invasive manner and on an outpatient basis. This has been a boon to patients with: brain tumors; vascular lesions; the movement disorders of Parkinson’s Disease and essential tremor; and pain conditions, such as trigeminal neuralgia --- resulting in vastly improved quality-of-life. While advances in computer processing and memory storage/retrieval speeds drove some of these breakthroughs, others came from progress in the fields of: neural networks and neuroanatomy; physics; radiology and robotics. Our speaker will describe these rapidly-evolving surgical approaches and their prospects for future use in treating myriad diseases, including psychiatric disorders.
