In 2013 we launched a new webinar program for acoustic neuroma patients, medical professionals, friends and family – a new ANA member benefit. These educational webinars cover key areas of interest relevant to AN patients with plenty of time for questions and answers. They are presented by leading acoustic neuroma medical professionals and AN patients who are ANA Board Directors.
To date we have presented nine webinars, and they are archived on our website in the Member Section.
Our webinar, Dealing With The New Normal,
Future webinars will include additional topics of interest to acoustic neuroma patients including the process of choosing a treatment option and managing a variety of post-treatment issues.
