Medical Support

LPA is committed to providing access to the most current medical information available.  Dedicated and experienced physicians from LPA’s Medical Advisory Board (MAB) generously volunteer to assist members and their physicians with medical consultations, referrals, and critical information. These physicians cover multi-specialized fields of practice.  

As a benefit of membership, LPA members are able to contact Medical Advisory Board doctors for help in diagnosis or for any medical concerns.  Medical Advisory Doctors often attend the yearly national conference to hold workshops and see patients - for free - at the conference hotel site.  

The online Medical Resource Center is a wealth of medical-related information.

Be sure to look at the Medical Articles page for important articles relating to the health of a person with dwarfism.
