Zocchi Brain Tumor Center at Monmouth Medical Center is hosting “Brainstorm: A Dialogue and Education Series,” a free community seminar scheduled for Monday, March 5 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in Monmouth Medical Center’s Borden Auditorium. Designed for those affected by all types of brain tumors, the free seminar will focus on understanding diagnostic scans, such as MRI, CT and PET scans.

The seminar will conclude with a panel discussion featuring brain tumor survivors who will share their personal stories.
