Each Month PNA Shines a Light on one of Pituitary Medicine's
Best and Brightest

PNA Spotlight: Andrew Lin, MD


Andrew Lin 2 smThis month the PNA Spotlight focuses on Dr. Andrew Lin, a neuro-oncologist and neurologist with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. He earned his MD from Weill Cornell Medical College, and did residencies in internal medicine and neurology at Barnes Jewish Hospital. He also completed a fellowship in neuro-oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Lin was kind enough to answer some questions from the PNA. His answers are below.



Pituitary Network Association

The PNA is an international non-profit organization for patients with pituitary tumors and disorders, their families, loved ones, and the physicians and health care providers who treat them.

The PNA was founded in 1992 by a group of acromegalic patients in order to communicate and share their experiences and concerns. The PNA has rapidly grown to become the world's largest and fastest growing patient advocacy organization devoted to the treatment and cure of pituitary disorders.

You Can Help! 

Donate Today

The PNA is supported by an international network of the world's finest physicians and surgeons. Our goal is to reach every patient who may be forgotten, abandoned, or worse yet, undiagnosed after many years of suffering. We are doing this in three ways: (1) by providing public awareness programs and educational seminars, (2) by assisting the medical community in developing uniform standards for early diagnosis, surgery, radiation, pharmacological treatment and follow-up, and (3) by having interactive web sites and a referral program on these web sites.

Mission Statement

To support, pursue, encourage, promote and where possible, fund research on pituitary disorders in a sustained and full-time effort to find a cure for these illnesses. The PNA will disseminate information helpful to the medical community, the public and to pituitary patients and their families on matters regarding early detection, symptoms, treatments and resources available to patients with pituitary disease.
