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. We learned that there is strength in number and we began to unite and build a voluntary umbrella group for ALL endocrine patients, their families, and the medical providers of these unique patients. We had learned that as independent groups, our voices were small but together we could accomplish great things. To see the full list of patient groups or medical societies we network.
ICOSEP became fully organized with an independent Board of Directors, Constitution and subsequent Ambassadors Board on 20 September 2012. ICOSEP is directed by an independent board of global member organization leaders and funded by The MAGIC Foundation, Global Division.
