Brain Tumour Information Days

A day of hope and support

2017 National Conference!

Building on the success of the 2016 Brain Tumour National Conference, we are once again amalgamating our efforts and resources from various Information Day Conferences to create a National Conference and educational journey rich with insights from the research brain tumour community and various experts.

There are no planned Information Days occurring in 2016 except for a French education program in Montreal.  In 2017 there are four main components to the conference, a Research Symposium, an Evening of Celebration, the main Conference which you can attend either in person or via live streaming, and an event in Montreal.

Find out more about how you can Join the Movement to End Brain Tumours at the National Conference.

Topics covered at the events can include brain tumour basics, surgery, non-malignant brain tumours, pediatric brain tumours and quality of life issues. There are opportunities to hear exciting speakers, connect with experts and find others on the brain tumour journey.
