International Low Grade Glioma Registry - a new project with the American Brain Tumor Association that offers patients with a low grade glioma diagnosis the opportunity to participate in research. The purpose of this registry is to discover why some people develop LGG while other people do not. The goal is also to learn more about the effect of this diagnosis and the asosciated treatments on daily life including the ability to work, drive, sleep, exercise, or take care of oneself and/or family.
