A Very Nice Honor

My painting being presented to Dr. Temple Grandin

FACES (Finding A Cure For Epilepsy & Seizures) is a part of NYU Langone Medical Center.  Their mission is to fund research, education, and patient and family services for those affected by epilepsy and their caregivers. Dr. Orrin Devinsky, Director of NYU’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, and Oliver Sacks, MD, Professor of Neurology at NYU School of Medicine, honored Temple Grandin, PhD, Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and a widely cited proponent of the rights of autistic persons and of animal welfare. Dr. Devinsky spoke of Dr. Grandin’s remarkable achievements and presented her with a special memento, a painting titled “Jersey” by Caryn King, commissioned for Dr. Grandin.
