Fairview-University Brain Tumor Center Holds Symposium

MINNEAPOLIS, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The Fairview-University Brain Tumor Center will hold its second annual Upper Midwest Brain Tumor Symposium March 23 and 24 at the Radisson Hotel South in Bloomington, Minn. The conference, open to the public, is planned to promote the sharing of information and experience between brain and spinal cord tumor patients, their families, friends, community members and health care professionals.

The event will address current treatment options, psychological issues, basic information about brain and spinal cord tumors, and strategies for coping. Specific topics include advances in research, surgery, radiation treatment and side effects, coping with seizures, and rehabilitation services.

Pre-registration is required. Call Fairview HealthWise at 612-672-7272, or 800-824-1953. There is no cost for patients, family and friends, thanks to sponsorship support.

Malignant brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death among children and young adults under age 34. More than 185,000 Americans, including an estimated 2,500 Minnesotans, are diagnosed with brain or spinal cord tumors each year. Brain tumor incidences continue to rise faster than the reported increases for cancer overall.

The Fairview-University Brain Tumor Center is a partnership of academic and community physicians and health care providers with the University of Minnesota Cancer Center. A multi-disciplinary team combines research and patient care to provide the best possible outcomes. The Fairview-University Brain Tumor Center is the regional referral center for the Upper Midwest and a national and international resource for brain tumor patients and their families.
