Living Well with a Meningioma
Thursday 29 April, 3-4.30pm
Are you living with a meningioma? A diagnosis that changes your life in so many ways should never be described as benign.
This webinar will help you to understand better the challenges that a meningioma diagnosis brings. Join us on 29 April to explore how you can live well with a meningioma.
We will cover why surgery isn’t always the best option, what decisions underpin treatment options, the impact of living with a meningioma, including fatigue, memory loss, and impact on pituitary function.
This webinar will be hosted by two leading clinical consultants with expertise in supporting people living with meningioma, Professor Michael Jenkinson and Dr Catherine McBain.
