Pauletta and Denzel Washington to present Cedars-Sinai neuroscience scholarships June 7

LOS ANGELES Two recipients of the 2006 Pauletta and Denzel Washington Family Gifted Scholars Program in Neuroscience will receive summer research scholarship awards Wednesday, June 7 at the James A. Foshay Learning Center, 3751 S. Harvard Blvd. in Los Angeles.

Pauletta and Denzel Washington will present the scholarships after a presentation by Keith L. Black, M.D., director of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's Comprehensive Brain Tumor Program and the Division of Neurosurgery, which funds the program.

The invitation-only event is open to the media and will begin at 11 a.m. with opportunities for photos and interviews. The ceremony will begin at 11:40 a.m. with remarks from Veronique Wills, principal of the Foshay Learning Center.

Recipients work under the direction of respected physicians, neurosurgeons and scientists, and prepare a scientific abstract or paper to submit to a national neuroscience, cancer or neurosurgery organization.

This year's scholarship recipients are Freya Elena Marshall, of Sierra Madre, a medical student at Meharry Medical College in Nashville who received her undergraduate degree at the University of Southern California, and Christopher R.
