Patient & Family Meetings

The Patient and Family Meetings are free virtual events, designed for brain tumor patients, caregivers and their loved ones to learn, gain support and build a community. 

These educational meetings allow attendees to hear from and engage with experts about brain tumor treatments, including standard of care and clinical trials, discuss methods to improve quality of life and understand invaluable resources in the community, while sharing experiences with other brain tumor patients and loved ones.

This year, each meeting focuses on an important topic impacting patients, caregivers and families along the brain tumor journey. 

These meetings will be held virtually to ensure the health and safety of our participants. 

The entire program has been mind-blowing...in a good way! So much great information, so well done, by so many different articulate and heartful experts. It was truly wonderful!
