Pituitary Network Association
P.O. Box 1958
Thousand Oaks, CA 91358
The Pituitary Network Association (PNA) is a support organization dedicated to promoting, supporting, and, where possible, funding research on pituitary tumors in a sustained effort to find a cure for these illnesses. Established in 1992 by four pituitary patients undergoing experimental treatment, the association is now the world's largest pituitary support network. Its members include affected individuals, physicians, and pharmaceutical companies. The association disseminates information to affected families, the medical community, and the public concerning early detection, symptoms, treatments, and resources available to pituitary patients. The Pituitary Network Association publishes a regular newsletter and a comprehensive resource guide. The guide, entitled "The Pituitary Patient Resource Guide," assists affected individuals to locate a variety of medical, surgical, insurance, occupational, lifestyle, and health maintenance services. It also helps primary-care physicians and other medical personnel to determine where to call for advice and consultation, where to send patients for specialized treatment and surgery, and what other medical specialties should be involved in treatment.
