The IBTA is delighted to announce that the next International Brain Tumour Awareness Week will be taking place from Saturday, 26 October to Saturday, 2 November 2019 inclusive. Now in its thirteenth year, this annual event is a celebration of awareness-raising activities that sees the international brain tumour community uniting to draw attention to the particular challenges of brain tumours and the need for a special response and an increased research effort.
The IBTA encourages you to raise the profile of brain tumours to organise or take part in an activity that will contribute to increased awareness about brain tumours. It could be, for example, a walk (see information about the Walk Around the World for Brain Tumours), a picnic, an information seminar, a scientific conference, or the distribution of a media statement to local or national media.
More information about International Brain Tumour Awareness Week (including promotional logo/poster to download), along with the IBTA’s other awareness-raising initiatives can be found on our website here. If you are running an event or activity, then we would ask you to please register/report your Awareness Week activity by completing this form.
