Angela Mastronuzzi: Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma Awareness Day

Angela Mastronuzzi shared on LinkedIn:

“Today is DIPG Awareness Day, which occurs annually on May 17th, during Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

This day allows us to honor our patients diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), an aggressive high-grade brain tumor that accounts for 10-20% of all brain tumors in children, and to stress the importance of clinical research.”
