OUR MISSION is to provide an emotional and communal support network for people touched by Acromegaly. We offer a central location for medical information on issues including: surgery, medication, radiation, and post diagnosis support. Most importantly, we work to provide a network of emotional support for our Acromegaly patients, their friends and their family.
We know how difficult it is to find a doctor to "listen" and take your issues seriously. It's difficult to find doctors familiar with Acromegaly, the signs, the systems, the associated issues.
Since 2009, the Acromegaly Community has been compiling a list of trusted Endocrinologists, Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Otolarynogologists, Pain Specialists, Family Practitioners, etc. from all around the world for you and your family to reach out. Locate your area and click on the dots to see our recommendations.
Acromegalics and their family are meeting around the world to find support, educate themselves and their loved ones, and become part of our special #acrofamily. No matter how small or large, these events touch our lives and help us accept each other, without judgments or prejudices.
We are delighted to invite you to a virtual educational program on Acromegaly on Friday, April 16 from 11 AM oto 4 PM. EST.
It is a free event and we hope you will make some time to attend this. Please invite friends and family as well. You will need access to a computer, smart phone or ipad to register for the event and to view the livestream program. Even if you can not attend the live event, please register anyway as there will be an on-demand form of this program available to registrants after the live event.
The conference will present the newest approaches and techniques in the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine disorders, including pituitary disorders, diabetes mellitus, bone and metabolic diseases, thyroid disorders, adrenal diseases and reproductive endocrinology. Participants will leave with up-to-date practical information which will have widespread clinical application.
