Welcome to the 2018 BWH Neurosurgery Brain Tumor Walk Team Page for the upcoming National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) fundraiser on Sunday, October 21st, 2018! As team captain, I am excited to have you either join our team and/or donate to help raise awareness for brain tumor care & treatment. For those of us at Brigham and Women's Department of Neurosurgery, I know we all take pride in doing what we can to support the patients we treat and to help those who even seek treatment elsewhere. If our donations, time and effort in supporting the NBTS and their mission can help just a single patient with a brain tumor, then we will be one step closer to reaching our mission.
The Department of Neurosurgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital is dedicated to serving the needs of the community. It is committed to providing the highest quality of health care to patients and their families, to expanding the boundaries of medicine through research, and to educating the next generation of health care professionals.
