Elizabeth and Anthony DeLuca welcomed supporters of the Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute (NRI) at Texas Children’s Hospital into their home last fall for the inaugural Transformational Talks event titled “Epilepsy Breakthroughs.”
Dr. Huda Zoghbi, director of the NRI, hosted the intimate cocktail reception and dinner, which featured remarks by several of Texas Children’s Hospital’s epilepsy experts.
The event was the first in a series that will provide in-depth explorations of a variety of pediatric diseases and disorders. The evening also served as an informal kick-off for Texas Children’s new epilepsy initiative, which will capitalize on the strengths of Texas Children’s Hospital, Baylor College of Medicine and the NRI to revolutionize epilepsy research and treatment.
Among the guests were Drs. Anne and Albert Chao, Muffet Blake and Bob Murray, Maureen and Dr. Gary Clark, Jan Duncan, Barbara and Michael Feigin, Robert Graham, Cynthia and Tony Petrello, Fairfax and Risher Randall, Dr. James Rivielo, Ginny Simmons, Anita and Gerald Smith, Barbara and Dr. Howard Weiner, Tracy and Richard Wilken, and Geraldina Wise.
