ABTA “Causes and Risk Factors Webinar”

Why did I get this #%*&# tumor? That’s a pretty normal reaction to learning that you have some evil entity living inside your skull and wreaking havoc with your brain, cognitive abilities, personality and everything else that makes you, you.

Often the answers you get are pretty vague and not particularly helpful.

That said, here’s an ABTA webinar that I believe will be particularly helpful: “Causes and Risk Factors of Brain Tumors”:

The blurb on the Inspire website says:
Join us online Wednesday, 2/12/2014 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Central time as we present another ABTA webinar: Causes and Risk Factors of Brain Tumors.
Concerns about causes of a brain tumor, risk factors, heredity and the environment are normal with a brain tumor diagnosis. This webinar will provide an update on what we know to be some of the causes and risk factors of brain tumors including changes in the chromosomes.

Presented by Jill Barnholtz-Sloan, PhD, associate professor at Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

This webinar includes an online Q & A session with Dr. Barnholtz-Sloan. Click here to register for the free Causes and Risk Factors of Brain Tumors webinar:
