More Info
We have scheduled Acromegaly Community’s first annual gathering for patients and their families on the weekend of May 6-8, 2011 in Las Vegas, NV at the Mirage Hotel.

The plan is to make the subject matter of the first weekend equally supportive and informative, and full of camaraderie. Since it is our first official get-together, we want to make sure we offer a spectrum of knowledge as it relates to Acromegaly, and the major needs and concerns of Acromegalics, their friends, and their loved ones.

We already have a top endocrinologist, psychologist who specializes in pituitary issues, and professionals to work with patients on journaling for their own self-support and reporting to doctors. We are still working on locking down a top-flight surgeon, as well as a physical therapist to discuss proper body movements, and working around joint pain.

This is a weekend for you and your loved ones. Make sure you reserve early, and get the discounts!

***Feel free to invite people you think would want to attend.

-We are working on potential scholarship opportunities. If finances could stand in your way of attending, please stay tuned!

Pituitary Gland Problems Have Many Symptoms

Just received this information from Sharmyn McGraw, a national spokesperson for those afflicted with Pituitary Brain Tumors and/or Hormonal Disorders, about a featured story on ABC Channel 7 news in Southern California. Dr. Daniel Kelly, a neurosurgeon at Saint John's Health Center, talks about pituitary gland problems and the symptoms to watch out for in this video.

Help get the word out - please take a minute to watch the video.
