A remarkable acromegaly story of transformation.

Today’s podcast is about our super athlete friend Risa August and her new book, “The Road Unpaved.”  We followed her herculean effort to ride 1845-plus miles to get from Canada to Mexico on the Pacific Coast Highway, which, as you can imagine, is no picnic for anyone, let alone if you are fighting acromegaly symptoms. It is downright amazing she did it at all. Now, she has written a book about her experience with acromegaly, the ride, and life. Learn more about Risa, her practice and her upcoming plans at Risa Unleashed. To read her past PWN articles search for Risa or Marisa here, or go to – www.risaaugust.com

Denials and other shenanigans: insurance companies and the games they play

Today’s’ podcast is a recording of the Pituitary World News talk program that aired live on November 16. The information comes directly from one of the busiest, most successful clinics in the world of pituitary disease. The podcast presents a real-world, honest, in-depth discussion of health insurance denials, how this practice affects patients and physicians, how they use guidelines to muddy the process, oppose individualized care, and question a specialist’s decision-making.
