Are you looking to expand your knowledge of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN)?
Do you want to learn more for FREE?
Make plans to attend the second annual American Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Support Seminar June 7, 2013, at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota!
Join individuals living with MEN Types 1, 2A and 2B, their families and other medical personnel for a day of learning and engagement. This free seminar is designed to be fun, social and informative in order for attendees to build a network of peers living with MEN. The seminar is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
Doctors with the Mayo Clinic will present topics on the types of surgeries MEN patients may face such as thyroid, parathyroid, pancreatic, pituitary and adrenal surgeries. Surgical care nurses will discuss hospital and surgical care for MEN patients. After lunch, Dr. David Farley, professor of surgery at Mayo Clinic and a Hageman Foundation board member, will lead participants on a tour of the Multidisciplinary Simulation Center at Mayo Clinic.
Other topics covered will include the basics of MEN, genetics of MEN and long-term care for MEN patients. Linda Hageman, founder of the Hageman Foundation and a Registered Nurse for over 30 years, will share stories from patients she has helped through the Foundation’s educational project – AMENSupport.org.
