「胖」您同行:香港小胖威利症家長大會

I am pleased to provide a comprehensive report on the highly successful "Prader-Willi Syndrome HK Parents' Conference 2023". This conference served as a vital platform for parents of children with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) in Hong Kong, bringing together a total of 20 participants from 10 PWS families. The conference featured a diverse range of speakers, including renowned experts such as geneticists, respirologists, endocrinologists, and dietitians. Their presentations covered various aspects of PWS, including the latest advancements in genetics, respiratory care, endocrine management, and dietary considerations.

It is worth noting that the event was co-organized by the Hong Kong Society of Paediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism (HKSPEM) and Rare Disease HK, demonstrating their commitment to supporting PWS families and raising awareness about this rare condition. The collaboration between these organizations ensured that the conference was well-structured and encompassed a comprehensive range of topics relevant to PWS.

The conference provided a unique opportunity for parents to gain valuable knowledge and insights, empowering them to better understand and manage the challenges associated with PWS. Additionally, it fostered a sense of community and camaraderie among the participants, allowing them to connect, share personal experiences, and provide support to one another.

「胖」您同行:香港小胖威利症家長大會

小胖威利症的小朋友通常自出生起已要面對各種健康的挑戰。由最初嬰幼兒期的低肌張力、餵食困難,至到幼童時期的胃口激增、進食過量和體重上升,以及青春期過後因為肥胖症引起的各種併發症和情緒問題,都令到家長們疲於奔命。


有見及此,香港兒童內分泌科學會和香港罕見病聯盟決定聯合舉辦【「胖」您同行:香港小胖威利症家長大會】,是香港第一個為這一班需要關注和照料的病人家長舉辦的家長大會。我們希望透過這個活動,與家長們分享這個遺傳病的成因和種種健康的問題,亦希望令到他們覺得在和病童走過這個旅途的時候不會覺得孤單。
