My name is Andrei Andrusov and I am the Chair of the WAPO Board. As my brother is an acromegaly patient, I have been involved in the activities of Velikan, the Russian Pituitary Patient Organisation.
My main activities are currently related to innovations, startups, and investment in the areas of education. Prior to this, I have worked for 10 years in business consulting and in retail banking in the US, UK, and France. Thanks to my studies in maths, I love building excel models and all sorts of data analysis.
As the Chair of WAPO, I hold the Bord meetings and am responsible for new patient group searches and support.
My dream is to make pituitary patient organizations as efficient and good as for-profit organizations, so that all parties, including patients, sponsors, and healthcare authorities can clearly see the added value created by patient organizations for the benefit of society.
