Together in Hope - A Conference for Brain Tumor Patients and Their Families

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the National Brain Tumor Society are teaming up to bring you a conference designed to answer your questions about the newest research on the causes and treatment of brain tumors, and strategies for dealing with issues faced by brain tumor patients, their loved ones and caregivers. We invite you to join us and take part in an exciting exploration of new therapies and sharing of common experiences.
 
Conference Highlights
 
General Sessions will highlight information on pathology, surgery, the newest treatment strategies as well as complementary therapies, and what current research advances can mean for future therapies. Workshop sessions organized into four tracks will allow you to tailor your educational experience to your specific needs. A consulting room is staffed by experienced health professionals for one-on-one sessions to answer your questions. Refresh and refocus in support groups, or stop by the wellness room to experience massage therapy. MD Anderson and the National Brain Tumor Society want you to receive the significant benefits of being updated with critiques and updates from our brain cancer medical experts.
