Brain Tumor Board Launches WebEx® Remote Conferencing

The brain tumor board at Swedish/Cherry Hill successfully launched its first WebEx® conference on Monday, November 29 from a Seattle Science Foundation conference room. Dr. Namou Kim presented a case remotely from his office at First Hill, and an Ivy Center staff member attended the conference from the East Coast. The software allows providers to attend the conference remotely via desktop computer and telephone when a patient they refer is being discussed, or they can present films and pathology to the subspecialists present onsite at the conference. The program will now be rolled out to physicians throughout the Pacific Northwest. For more information or to present a case, contact John W.

3rd Annual Brain Cancer Walk Raises Over $426,000

Over 2,000 people arrived at the Seattle Center’s Mural Amphitheatre on Saturday, June 26th to show their support in raising awareness and finding a cure for brain cancer. There has been over $426,000 raised and the numbers continue to climb.

 

The walk was hosted by Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and proceeds from the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk will benefit organizations focusing on brain cancer research and patient care in the Pacific Northwest, including the Ben and Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute.

These organizations are now working together using groundbreaking research and integrative patient care, to find a cure. This progress brings hope to families, friends, and the 22,000 Americans - 1,200 in the Pacific Northwest - who are diagnosed with a malignant tumor each year.
