Ohio Pituitary Patient Symposium at OSU and Gentle Giant Awards Dinner

Please join the Pituitary Network Association and The Ohio State University for a Pituitary Patient Symposium featuring a series of pituitary and hormonal patient education seminars presented by some of the top physicians of pituitary and hormonal medicine. The symposium faculty will share the most up-to-date information and be available to answer your most pressing questions.

Following the Patient Symposium you are cordially invited to attend Pituitary Network Association’s Gentle Giant Award Reception and Dinner. Join us in honoring Dr. Daniel Prevedello for his exemplary accomplishments in the field of pituitary medicine.  Dr. Prevedello is an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical center and Director of OSU’S Minimally Invasive Cranial Surgery Program.  Dr. Prevedello is internationally recognized in the field of minimally invasive surgery for brain, pituitary, and skull based tumors and has been a member of Best Doctors of America the last five years.  As a practicing neurosurgeon for over 15 years, Dr. Prevedello has performed over 1,800 procedures of which, over 800 were using the Endoscopic Endonasal Approach.  His current surgical practice encompasses the full spectrum of brain and skull based tumors, both benign and malignant, treated with minimally invasive and conventional approaches.

Registration is available for one or both events. The Patient Symposium registration fee is $30 and includes continental breakfast and lunch*. The Award Reception and Dinner is $50 per person or $80 for two (bring a friend or loved one and receive a discount of $20 on the purchase of 2 tickets).
