Conference



The Foundation's patient & family conferences are designed to help attendees learn more about Graves’ Disease, thyroid eye disease, and related disorders. Guest speakers include physicians, researchers, and allied health professionals. Attendees are also be able to share their own experiences and connect with fellow patients and family members.

In order to keep registration fees free for attendees, the GDATF presented a series of 1/2 day events in 2014, rather than an annual conference.

Please check back for information on our 2015 programming!
