Health Information

While suffering with the results of our pituitary, adrenal or rare diseases, WAPO invited several health experts in the past WAPO Global Summits, e.g. Mindfulness and Tai Chi exercises for the present patient advocates.
During the discussions, it became more and more clear, that it is difficult to find the right exercises or health trainer, while are understanding what ‘living with a pituitary disease’ means.

We hope, with this page on our website, to collect and share interesting news and exercises to do at home and/or with your caregiver(s).
Ofcourse we invite you to share content or let us know how the information and exercises are helping you!
