We are so grateful to all our medic volunteers and there are always plenty of ways you can get involved to support our work and continue your professional development at the same time. Here are some of our current opportunities:

1. Set up a Hospital Meeting

For you a Hospital Meeting's a chance to:

  • Get to know your patients with Adrenal Insufficiency a little better
  • Check the management of their condition and readiness for emergencies in a less formal setting
  • Get feedback to help you make your care even more marvellous!
  • Invite your team to meet people with Adrenal Insufficiency if they haven’t before
  • Invite your students along to learn from real cases and personal stories

For your patients it's an opportunity to

  • Share their experiences of AD with others
  • Practise the Emergency Injection
  • Talk to a professional about concerns that might not come to light in clinic and that might just help others

2. Host our Facing Addison’s Photographic Exhibition at your hospital

Their photos and stories are truly inspiring and enlightening and help raise awareness of what life is like with the condition. Please contact us if you would like more information.

3. Involve Adrenal Insufficiency patients as educators:

Invite volunteers with Adrenal Insufficiency to student exams and other learning sessions to provide them the chance learn about diagnosis and ongoing care from real cases and personal stories. Contact us and we can always contact our members to ask for volunteers as required to help you either online or in person where covid-19 restrictions allow.
