Informed Parent & Survivor Internet Conference Series
The PBTF has created an outreach program to bring parents and survivors information on topics of vital importance to their understanding of pediatric brain tumors.
The impact of the disease on parents, survivors and siblings, from diagnosis through survivorship, is found in these presentations. Experts in the fields addressed by each conference bring resources to families that don't have access to this type of information through any other means.
This program's reach is international thanks to the Internet. Click on the individual links below to listen to the archived broadcasts, or order a copy on CD.
