Acromegaly Ottawa Awareness & Support Network is pleased to report that this past Tuesday, March 3, we hosted a successful opening night of Santino Matrundola’s Light of Day photo exhibit at the Shenkman Arts Centre in Orleans. The exhibit features 16 acromegaly patient portraits. The vernissage was well attended by the public and included local MP Madame Marie-France Lalonde and Ottawa City Councillor Matthew Luloff. Guest speaker Dr. Dora Liu, Endocrinologist, informed the group of how the Ottawa Hospital Endocrinology Department has changed as it relates to providing improved services for patients.
President, Dianne Sauvé spoke about the group’s formation and how it has grown since its inception in May 2018 to its current size of 67 members today. The exhibit is only one of many activities planned by the group to build awareness for acromegaly and provide support to its members.
The exhibit received an overwhelmingly positive response from attendees on opening night and we encourage the public to visit as it remains on display until March 22, 2020.
