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 will also be able to share their own experiences and connect with fellow patients and family members.

In order to keep registration fees low (or free!) for attendees, the GDATF is currently presenting 1/2 day events, rather than multi-day conferences. 

Upcoming Educational Events for 2014:
