Pituitary Patient Education Day
Pituitary Patient Education Day is a free event designed to help patients with pituitary disorders learn more about their condition and treatment options, as well as meet other people going through similar challenges.
The 11th Pituitary Patient Education Day took place on October 19, 2019 at the Mount Washington Convention Center and gathered more than 100 patients who listened to lectures and participated in round-table discussions.
Stay tuned for the 2020 dates!
