Advancing the understanding and awareness of brain tumors
Join efforts to bring attention to the brain tumor cause. Volunteers AMP UP by engaging in activities that drive awareness of brain tumors and the resources available at the American Brain Tumor Association to the general public, the media and legislators.
Social Ambassadors use social media to raise awareness about the brain tumor cause and the ABTA's efforts. Existing volunteers can become a Social Ambassador by completing the Social Media 101 training in the Volunteer Learning Center.
Advocacy - Volunteers are the first to know about urgent advocacy-related issues that could jeopardize federal funding of brain tumor research. Become a volunteer and the ABTA will let you know via email and social media when and how to contact your local government officials about the brain tumor cause.
Your Insight Drives Our Direction: Poll Results More than 2,300 people—patients, caregivers, family and friends—completed the ABTA’s online poll which was available on the website from February 25, 2015 to March 22, 2015. The data collected and responses provided underscore the need for the ABTA CommYOUnity™ to reach more people, in more places, and in more meaningful ways. The ABTA will use the poll results to help identify the need for brain tumor information and resources for patients, caregivers and health care professionals at the point of diagnosis and throughout the trajectory of the disease. Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the poll.
