Hypopara Facebook Groups and Pages


Hypopara UK was the first hypopara organisation to appear on facebook back in 2008 and we were thrilled when others began to join us, raising awareness and providing much needed support all around the world. Today, Facebook is the most common way for newly diagnosed patients to find a support group and we use Facebook pages and their accompanying support groups both to raise awareness and as the first step in building a new patient organisation.  

Here are all the pages and groups currently operating on facebook but not yet a formal this space!
