  • UK Brain Tumour Symposium (formerly the UK Brain Tumour Summit) sells out in 48 hours

    UK Brain Tumour SymposiumLast week we announced, with Brain Tumour Research, the first UK Brain Tumour Symposium to be held jointly between our two organisations. The event is to take place in Milton Keyne's on the 12th Ocotber 2017. Following the launch on Friday 18th, the event was full by the Sunday evening with a waiting list now open. 


    On this, brainstrust's Chief Exectutive, Will Jones says,

    "Of course this is great news that there is such demand from our community for information on the latest treatments, brain tumour support initiatives and of course on research and campaigning for a better world for people with a brain tumour. We have an exciting programme for this event which I am sure people will find engaging, empowering and useful. On the flipside I understand it is frustrating for those that have been keen to join us and who haven't been able to register succesfully. Straight away we know that we must run the event again next year, and we will be working hard to generate the funding needed to cater for the demand. Thank you for your understanding, and we are really looking forward to sharing with you updates from the event by way of our social media reporting and newsletters"
