The Barrow Pituitary Center is hosting our second medical conference on November 2, 2013. This event will focus on Acromegaly and Cushing’s disease and is designed to meet the educational needs of medical professionals. This event is not intended for the general public due to the scientific approach of the lectures.

If you are currently suffering from Acromegaly or Cushing’s disease, tell your physicians (primary care physician, neurologist, endocrinologist, gynecologist, and their office staff) about this opportunity to learn about effective diagnostic tests and the most advanced treatment options.

Speakers at this event include experts at Barrow, Drs. Andrew Little, William White, and Laura Knecht, as well as our esteemed invited lecturers, Lynette Neiman, MD from NIH and Mary Lee Vance, MD, from the University of Virginia.

We have all been there: not knowing how much assistance to offer the person next to you who is confined to a wheelchair. Is this person struggling? Should I help them? Will they be offended if I do? How much independence do they want?

Join us next Wednesday for an opportunity to learn the proper way to interact with individuals with disabilities. Click here for more details.

Barrow Neurological Institute doesn’t just cater to patients, we are also a mecca for continuing education. We offer conferences every month that cover various medical conditions.

Under the direction of Drs. William White, Andrew Little, and Laura Knecht, the Barrow Pituitary Center offers educational talks the third Tuesday of each month lead by Barrow neurosurgical residents and endocrine fellows affiliated with the VA Endocrine Program. Literature reviews and case presentations focus on topics such as Cushing’s disease, Acromegaly, Pituitary Adenomas, and other pituitary-related disorders.

For our September 2013 Neuroendocrine Conference, Dr. Little gave a talk called, “Key Advances in the Treatment of Pituitary Tumors. Keep in mind this was intended for an audience of medical professionals, so if you don’t understand some of the language used in the talk you can post your questions here.
