Lake Land College to host pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma symposium

The Lake Land College Office of Community and Professional Programs will host a Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma Symposium on Thursday, Oct. 3.

This one-day symposium investigates the anatomy and physiology of the autonomic nervous system and the manifestation and clinical presentation of neuro-endocrine disease, with emphasis on pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma. Advancements in treatment, diagnostic

imaging, and patient’s “personal experiences” will be included. The symposium is set out to not only educate the public about pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma which are rare tumors originating in the adrenal glands that have emerged as the key model of cancer biology and future treatments of all cancers, but it will also serve as a continuing education opportunity for Illinois dental hygienists and nurses. 

James Filipiak, adjunct instructor of human anatomy and physiology, is the keynote speaker.  After 23 years of symptoms, Filipiak was diagnosed with a life-threatening tumor of his left adrenal medulla. Filipiak is an advocate for the education of pheochromocytoma by maintaining a support group, representing the disease in newspapers and magazines and by hosting the annual Pheo Symposium through Lake Land College.

For the general public, nurses and dental hygienists, the cost to register is $59 which will include food, one-half of a college credit hour and class materials. The cost for students is $20.
