Brain Tumor Program Hosts Patient Education Event

June 08, 2018

The Smilow Brain Tumor Program hosted an educational seminar for patients and community providers discussing “A Thoughtful Approach in the Fight Against Brain Tumors: Personalizing Care for the Best Outcomes.” The event featured a welcome with hors d’oeuvres and time to mingle and was generously sponsored by the Lovemark Foundation and supported by the Connecticut Brain Tumor Alliance (CTBTA). 

Over 50 people attended to hear brain tumor neurosurgeon Dr. Jennifer Moliterno describe the most state-of-the-art neurosurgical approaches to optimize removal of brain tumors, even making inoperable tumors more operable. Neuro-oncologist Dr. Zac Corbin gave a thorough overview of cutting edge clinical trials and treatments for brain tumors following surgery. Both doctors discussed Precision Medicine and answered insightful questions from the audience, expanding on these topics, as well as the future development of treatment options. 

The Smilow Brain Tumor Program looks forward to hosting similar events in the future and plans to do so this fall. For more information about these educational opportunities or to seek prompt consultation, please call 203-785-2791.
