Nina's oil painting  to have a place of honor  at UCLA
 
The painting of Dr. Alfonsina (Nina) Q, Davies finally has a home. It will be on display in a prominent place in the  new Department of Neurosurgery at UCLA.

She is being honored trough her generosity and that of  her parents' who endowed a chair in her name. The Dr. Alfonsina Q. Davies Endowed Chair for Epilepsy Research. It is the first of its kind at UCLA. 

It will specifically focus on the primary causes of epilepsy that can be surgically treated.

We commissioned her portrait to a well known artist, Del Parsons.
