Our first-in-history WAPO Summit was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The 26 patient advocates present at the 2016 Summit represented 17 national organizations from 15 countries. We were very fortunate to have eight medical experts on Acromegaly and Cushing’s, as well as guest speakers on other subjects. Six representatives from our sponsor organizations also attended as observers.
Given the 2016 WAPO Summit was such a success it was agreed that we would organize it annually.
