People and Organizations of the World Unite! 

FACTS:

Every cell in our human bodies are impacted by hormones in our endocrine system. A healthy endocrine system is essential for healthy life!

Medical and patient organizations, as well as other supporters, are uniting to improve endocrine awareness. We foresee that endocrinology is more essential to the future of medicine.

Endocrinologists are the primary resources of addressing: Medical problems affecting children’s growth (too much or too little). Growth irregularities are NOT cosmetic issues they are early warning signs of potentially dangerous conditions! Parents and pediatricians should not “wait and hope” growth problems go away.

Who is ICOSEP?  

ICOSEP members are parent associations, and medical societies joined together as one team to help children with health issues which are identifiable by a disruption (too much or too little) in their physical growth.

What is our purpose? 

  • ICOSEP is uniting people around the world to reduce the diagnosis time for discovering serious medical conditions which can be diagnosed in part by a child’s irregular growth pattern.
  • We are building a global voice to share information and resources pertaining to medical conditions affecting children’s growth. People unite online each 20 September to share one simple message and encourage medical attention for undiagnosed children while time is still available. Our message: Is your child growing normally? Find out! Because a child’s growth is a serious sign of their health. Simple problems such as thyroid imbalances to serious life altering problems such as brain tumors can first show up in a child’s irregular growth pattern. “For information on this issue contact the Patient Groups or Medical Experts in your country. If you know of a group which is not represented on our list, please invite them to contact us. Qualifying membership is free.

Mission

ICOSEP’s Mission is to unite local and regional support organizations and medical professionals into a global network. This network shares information, experiences and advice, and exchanges resources to help groups effectively advocate for patients. ICOSEP’s commitment is to reduce average diagnosis age of children with growth impacting medical conditions, promote valuable and quality information and encourage long term health improvement for affected children; consequently, adults via early identification.

ICOSEP is the proud leader of a global educational project: The International Children’s Growth Awareness campaign. To see the impact, visit our feed.
