ABTA Patient Education Meetings

I really like the American Brain Tumor Association’s educational webinars, meetings and conferences. I’ve attended several and wished I’d learned about them before my operation. A recent ABTA email from them listed a new batch, if you don’t know about them, here’s the link:  http://hope.abta.org/site/MessageViewer?dlv_id=37741&em_id=26901.0   

Here’s descriptions of a couple that caught my eye:
“In addition to hosting our own educational programs and conferences, the ABTA takes part in and supports local brain tumor events designed for patients and their families all around the country. Here’s where we’ll be in the coming weeks:
