WELCOME TO THE SSBTR WEBSITE!Students in leadership positions learn about brain tumors and gain real world experience in running a non-profit business while raising funds for brain tumor research. Beneficiaries of the money we raise are Barrow Neurological Institute, National Brain Tumor Society, Phoenix Childrens Hospital, Steele Childrens Research Center in Tucson, and Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen). With your help we can make a difference. The intent of our website is to further our objectives of disseminating information about this disease process, stimulating more widespread involvement within our community through donating, volunteering and participating in one or more of our events, and publicizing and promoting this exceptional student-run organization.
