RENO, Nev. (Dec. 4, 2013) – Sierra Neurosurgery Group (SNG) is proud to announce its alliance with ThinkFirst of Northern Nevada, the Reno-Tahoe area chapter of the ThinkFirst National Injury Prevention Foundation. ThinkFirst of Northern Nevada was founded in 2011 by SNG’s Dr. Lali Sekhon with the purpose of helping prevent head and spinal cord injuries among children and teens. As part of its mission, ThinkFirst is dedicated to providing high-quality, impactful, scientifically-validated programs, acting socially responsible and leading by example.
As a national organization founded in 1986, each locally established ThinkFirst chapter is sponsored by a local neurosurgeon who is committed to public education and injury prevention. In April 2013, Dr. Sekhon was named 2013 Physician Sponsor of the Year for his outstanding commitment and contribution to injury prevention. He joins Doctors Demers and Morgan on the non-profit organization’s board of directors.
