HISTORY: The International Coalition for Organizations Supporting Endocrine Patients [ICOSEP] began as patient organizations from various areas of the world began communicating. We learned that no matter where we lived, we all had similar challenges and stories. From these communications we began to build a voluntary umbrella group for ALL endocrine patients, their families, and the medical providers of these unique patients.
As independent groups, our voices were small but together we can accomplish great things. If a group has problems in their country, we unite our organizations to fight the problem. Together we are strong for all endocrine issues. (See the full list of patient groups or medical societies we network.)
ICOSEP became fully organized with an Advisory Board (independent board of global member organization leaders ), Constitution and subsequent Ambassadors Board on 12 September 2012. ICOSEP is sponsored and funded by The MAGIC Foundation.
