About our Conferences
CBTF sponsors annual teleconferences on a variety of topics addressing the needs of brain tumor patients, their families, and health professionals.
A teleconference seminar is a perfect vehicle to provide education and support for families - it is user-friendly, since it does not require that listeners leave home or that parents obtain childcare for their chronically ill child.
The teleconferences are free of all phone and registration charges, last about one hour, and offer presentations by outstanding medical experts. Each registrant receives an information packet containing a program schedule, instructions, information about the services offered by our agencies, and back-up factual material about the topic.
