We also invite patients with pituitary disease and their caregivers to attend this educational activity and participate in our interactive afternoon breakout sessions. Overall this course aims to improve patient care and outcomes through evidence-based discussion of clinical practice guidelines and emerging therapies. Our goal is to assess and update current practices to promote earlier diagnosis and treatment of pituitary diseases. The multidisciplinary nature of the course will allow for the dissemination of knowledge across the variety of practitioners caring for pituitary patients, and for the patients themselves. Pituitary patients will be able to review treatment options, learn about ongoing clinical trials, and discuss their comprehensive care with providers and other patients. The educational objective of this patient session is to provide a forum for pituitary patients to discuss treatment options and new therapies with providers and other patients. Patients with pituitary disease and their caregivers are invited to attend this educational activity FREE of charge.

Sign Up and Enjoy Patient Benefits To join our database and to receive a $5 gift card if you qualify, please complete the form below. Currently, we are looking for patients and caregivers with many different rare conditions. Please fill out the sign-up form below and we’ll let you know if you qualify. If you are the caregiver of more than one patient, or are both a patient and caregiver, please fill out a separate entry for each and you will receive multiple gift cards. Please be aware that each entry is checked individually. Please include your correct personal phone number as we will call you to verify your information. It may take up to four weeks before you receive your gift card if you qualify. Read more about how we use your information. At this time we are accepting patients and caregivers across all diseases and conditions. However, that does not guarantee we will have surveys for you. If there are not any companies that have treatments available, or there are no companies developing treatments, then there would be no sponsors for surveys. But we are always looking for sponsors for all disease categories! Only one caregiver per household, please! That is because our survey sponsors won’t allow more than one response from caregivers in the same household. If you have more than one caregiver, you can decide which of you can do each survey. Please be aware that the rewards you earn from participating in market research, like all income you receive, is considered taxable by the IRS. We are required to submit form 1099 for each patient or caregiver whom we pay $600 or more in a year. We are proud to say that we’ve rewarded patients with over $2.1 million for participating in surveys in the past four years! Register here!
