Past Patient & Family Meetings

Brain metastases, or secondary brain tumors, are the most common central nervous system tumors in the U.S. They begin from another location in the body and then spread to the brain. Attendees at this meeting will gain important knowledge around diagnosis, treatment and quality of life. In addition, attendees will learn how to navigate novel science and clinical trials and their care. 

Low-grade gliomas (LGG) are slow-growing primary brain tumors that mainly affect young to middle-aged adults. Join this meeting to learn about updated tumor classifications, emerging treatments, and tips for managing disease symptoms and day-to-day challenges living with LGG.
