From online to real world!

group - first meeting

We are very happy to share with you that Acromegaly Ottawa Awareness & Support Network held their first Meet & Greet on Friday January 4, 2019. Thank you, Dianne, for hosting this little soirée, and for the abundance of delicious treats!

We were finally together in person, but we didn’t forget our online friends who couldn’t be there. We went live on Facebook to stream the more formal, informational segment of the meeting. You can check that out in the videos section of the group.

The group was eager to get together and excited to share personal stories and engage in a lively discussion. New friendships were made and some great ideas were exchanged. The group is always happy to welcome new members. Both patients and their caregivers are welcome and membership is FREE. Reach us at acromegalyottawa@gmail.com or join the Facebook group.

We are currently seeking patient stories for a blog series we’ll be creating. If you’re interested in sharing the story of your journey with acromegaly, please send us an email. We will then send you some questions for you to answer, in a sort of digital interview format.

Plans are already in progress for our next get-together which will probably take place in the spring. We will keep everyone updated when a time and place is determined.

In the meantime, please subscribe to our mailing list to make sure you get all the news, delivered right to your inbox!

Angie Sauvé, Communications Officer
