PNA Co-hosts Ohio Pituitary Patient Symposium

Prev Ghalib Flesrui PNA group photoOn Saturday, September 14, 2019 the Pituitary Network Association joined forces with The Ohio State University Pituitary Center for the Ohio Pituitary Patient Symposium 2019 hosted at the The James Comprehensive Cancer Center in Columbus, OH. Held in conjunction with the OSU Pituitary CME Symposium, the day was filled with a series of 11 pituitary and hormonal education sessions presented by experts in pituitary medicine with the most up-to-date information on pituitary disorders and treatment. Keynote speaker Maria Fleseriu, MD, FACE from OHSU in Portland, OR spoke on Hypopituitarism and Daniel Prevedello, MD the OSU Pituitary Program Co-Director gave a riveting talk on the Surgical Approach: What to Expect with video of an actual surgery. Dr. Luma Ghalib, MD, endocrinologist and esteemed member of the OSU pituitary team spoke on the Psychosocial Implications of Pituitary Disease, a subject that is of interest to many patients. The Radiation Therapy session was especially interesting, detailing how the future of this therapy will be able to be more precisely administered. All of the presentations had the audience captivated, there are not enough words to convey how amazing each and every presentation was.

Patients and their families in attendance were engaged and took every opportunity to ask their most pressing questions during the sessions and Round Table Q & A times.

The feedback from the attendees has been very positive:

Everyone was very passionate and professional about their topic. You can tell that they also enjoy their jobs. C.F.

Everyone did a superior job. I feel that we were all treated royally. Thank you for putting this on. I no longer feel so alone. G.S.

You put on a world class event! The presentations were all so well done and truly patient focused. G.W.

The PNA would like to thank the OSU team, the symposium faculty, and everyone who attended for making this patient symposium so beneficial for the pituitary patient community.
