At the Chris Elliott Fund, we try and find new ways to reach out to the brain tumor community far and wide. So we started something new this year and it’s been a great success: our Brains Matter Webinar Series. These free webinars bring together the brain tumor community and specialists to engage on topics that our patients have told us are most important to them. Our first Brains Matter Webinar, held in January was terrific. A big thanks to our guest speaker Dr. Gregory Foltz, who was on hand to give expert advice on the most important questions you should ask your doctor when diagnosed with a brain tumor. We all know knowledge is power; knowledge can alleviate fears, empower decisions and most importantly change outcomes. And that’s what we are looking to do with our Brains Matter Series, change outcomes.
So please join us for our next webinar on February 28th for the webinar: “A Brain Tumor Patient’s Guide to Insurance and Financial Resources“, where we approach the difficult subject of insurance and finance as they pertain to the brain tumor patient.
This is an educational opportunity for brain cancer patients, caregivers and the general public. We are lucky to have our special guest, the Patient Advocate Foundation (PAF) to offer expert information on this topic. The PAF is a national leader on the forefront of issues within patient-focused healthcare ad services, as the voice of patients in need.
