Pituitary Awareness Month - You Name It

We have heard many stories about how some of you have named your tumors. Some have even had eviction parties when they are removed. We have often thought about how the pituitary is a character that has such control over our day to day feelings and reactions so we decided to make a cartoon character out of a pituitary gland. We need your help to name it. Submit your ideas to [email protected] so we can name it together.

Thousand Oaks Rotary Street Fair - Pituitary Awareness Month

TO Street FairIn honor of Pituitary Awareness Month, the Pituitary Network Association took to the streets of Thousand Oaks, CA to raise awareness for pituitary disorders by participating in the Thousand Oaks Rotary Street Fair. With an estimated 19,000 people in attendance, the PNA drew in the crowds by holding a fundraiser, raffling off prizes that were donated by local businesses in the community. We developed a new handout and gave it out, along with other goodies to people as they walked by. People stopped by to ask, "What is a pituitary?". In addition, several pituitary patients shared their stories and thanked us for being there to spread awareness. It was a hot, blustery day and our four-legged friends were able to enjoy a cool drink of water while their owners stopped in to chat. The people who hung around for the drawing waited with anticipation as the tickets were pulled and the winners announced. Winners were overjoyed as they took their prizes home. The PNA wishes to thank all the businesses who donated to our cause to make this day a success, as well all the people who participated in the raffle. It was a truly memorable day!
