Pituitary Patient Network conducts acromegaly campaign

The Canadian Pituitary Patient Network is conducting a campaign intended to raise awareness of acromegaly, a disease that causes abnormal skeletal and soft tissue growth. The campaign, called "Light of Day," includes a photography exhibit in Montreal. The exhibit consists of 11 portraits of acromegaly patients, accompanied by a description of their experiences.

"Acromegaly also has hidden family, work, social and psychological impacts, often causing those affected to suffer in silence and isolation for a long time because of the significant impact on the mind and body, and because it is so rare," said Brent Baker, co-founder of the Canadian Pituitary Patient Network.
