Brain Tumour National Conference

Brain Tumour National Conference

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada strives to provide relevant and up-to-date information on brain tumours. Three years ago, we launched an English Brain Tumour National Conference in Toronto, coupled with a one-day Leadership Volunteer Training and a Celebration Dinner to honour both volunteers and donors.
 
After evaluating the impact of the first three English Brain Tumour National Conferences, we found that live streaming had the biggest impact on our community. A total of 1,800 people streamed various sessions between all three conferences in Toronto.

With this in mind, we have made some changes:

  • We will continue to offer the Leadership Volunteer Training; this training will now be over a two-day period (October 18-19, 2019) and will occur in London, Ontario.
     
  • The Celebration Dinner will also continue. Anyone from the brain tumour community is welcome to attend by paying a fee (fee TBD). The Celebration Dinner will take place on October 18, 2019, in London, ON. Registration will open in Spring 2019.
     
  • To reach more people affected by a brain tumour, we are now offering a free webinar series with various online presentations throughout the year which will include topics around research, treatment, advance care planning, young adults living with a brain tumour, personal stories from survivors and caregivers, and more! These webinars will replace the English Brain Tumour National Conference. The first webinar will take place on February 13, 2019.
     
  • The French Brain Tumour National Conference will continue as planned in Montreal, QC and will be live streamed (Fall 2019). Registration will open in Spring 2019.
     
We look forward to offering these educational opportunities to reach more patients, families, volunteers, researchers and health care professionals across the country through the 2019 Brain Tumour Webinar Series, as well as our various Health Care and Research Symposiums

Featured Story

Doug's Adventure

I am Doug, I have brain cancer; I am told it is terminal, but the “good” kind of terminal. I can assure you that receiving that news was not as good as I think the people telling me thought it would be. But I choose never to define myself with negatives or problems so I will begin again; Hi, my name is Doug, a current defending two-time world rowing champion. That sounds better. Here is just a small summary of my adventure last year.
