UR Medicine’s neuro-oncology program will host a free workshop for those caring for an adult with a primary brain tumor from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 1 at Colgate Rochester Divinity School, 1100 S. Goodman St., Rochester.
Primary brain tumors can be either slow growing or aggressive and can cause changes in personality, mood or behavior; problems with hearing, vision or speech; and loss of balance and trouble walking.
Palliative care specialist Robert Horowitz will provide tips on how families can cope. Kara Juszczak, a licensed master social worker, will offer insights on how caregivers can care for themselves.
Registration is required. Breakfast and lunch are included.
