The Alberta Pituitary Patient Society is striving to set up a network of support groups across the province. These groups will be run by dedicated volunteers who give their time to offer support and information to anyone living in their area affected by a pituitary condition or related adrenal condition. The intent of these groups is to provide a positive environment that connects patients with others in order to share experiences and offer insight, non-medical advice, and support.
The APPS currently has a drop-in group in Edmonton.
Do you live in Calgary, Grande Prairie, or Medicine Hat?
We are looking for volunteers to help us establish drop-in sessions in these locations. If you are interested in becoming involved, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help us support pituitary patients across Alberta.
The Edmonton Support Group holds drop-in sessions on the second (2nd) Thursday of every month. Support group meetings are posted here and also on the APPS Facebook page.
Everyone (teen, transitioning adult, adult) diagnosed with a pituitary or other related disorder is welcome to join this growing group. Patients’ caregivers, parents/guardians, supporters, and friends are also welcome. APPS Support Group drop-in sessions are endorsed by health-care professionals.
If you have questions or need more information, e-mail Sonja Durinck, APPS Patient and Family Services Coordinator, at Sonja.Durinck@albertapituitary.org
