Patients helping Patients

Who are we?

The Alberta Pituitary Patient Society


The goal of The Alberta Pituitary Patient Society is provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives. 

We are a health organization dedicated to promoting individualized healthcare, funding research, finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for patients with pituitary disorders.

Within Alberta, no support groups for pituitary disorders exist at present. Pituitary patients and caregivers are largely left to navigate a dysfunctional, chaotic healthcare system on their own with only the support of their isolated physicians. No opportunity is available for connecting with other patients and professionals beyond their isolated interface. The Alberta Pituitary Patients’ Society (APPS) is here to address this gap.
