Birmingham conference - sessions for younger people

Postby Rosa » Mon Jun 03, 2013 2:38 pm

The Pituitary Foundation conference this year was the first to include specific sessions for younger patients, and we have received positive feedback regarding the sessions. Dr Helena Gleeson ran a session on transition for younger patients and there was a separate 'Meet up and talk' afternoon session which gave younger patients a chance to share stories and gain peer support. It was great to see increased numbers of younger patients attending than at previous conferences, we hope that the reduced delegate rate and the younger people’s sessions helped fuel this. Hopefully we will be able to do all this again at the next conference and take on board some of the feedback - keep an eye on our website for conference details (likely 2014) It would be great to see lots of you there!
