Emory St. Joseph’s Support Group
May 6, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every 2 weeks that begins at 12:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until December 31, 2022
Hosted by the SBTF, the Emory Brain Tumor Support Group aims to provide an opportunity for information sharing and support for brain tumor patients, as well as their family, their friends and their caregivers. Learn about all the brain tumor support group opportunities on our Support Group Resource page.
The Emory Brain Tumor Support Group currently meets via the online platform Zoom due to pandemic safety concerns. When able, the group meets at the St. Joseph’s campus of Emory Healthcare in Atlanta, Georgia. However, the online platform is slated to continue even after face-to-face meetings can resume. This will allow participants not in the Atlanta area and those who do not feel comfortable in a group setting to still have access to the support group.
Meetings are held every other Thursday from 12:30 – 2:00 pm ET. The meetings are open to patients and their caregivers. Some meetings include a guest speaker on topic relevant to the brain tumor community. Past guests have included representatives from the Brain Donor Project, the Jasper Health app, physical therapy professionals and more.
All support group meetings are facilitated by a trained medical professional and are inclusive of all patients who are facing a brain tumor diagnosis and their caregivers.
