The GDATF is in the process of upgrading our website, and we do not currently have donation or online forum functionality. Please bear with us during this transition - we can't wait for you to see the our new site, which will feature an improved mobile experience and new accessibility options! In the meantime, please feel free to contact us via email at [email protected], by phone at 877-643-3123 (USA & Canada), on Facebook (which includes a closed group) or Twitter at @GDATF), or one oneGRAVESvoice.com.
The GDATF will be transitioning to a new website soon, and the state of our online patient forum is in a bit of flux. The forum's 124,000+ posts will NOT be lost, but they might exist in a different format. We will keep everyone posted as we know more.
In the meantime, we currently have two other online forum options:
GDATF Closed Group on Facebook (select “Join Group” in the top right-hand corner of the GDATF's Facebook page, and answer the new member questions): https://www.facebook.com/GDATF
oneGRAVESvoice.com (a collaboration between the GDATF, Horizon Therapeutics, and rareLife Solutions)

The GDATF is finalizing our planned events and outreach programs for the remainder of 2021, and we'd like to know what YOU think! How can we best serve our community members? Support groups? More webinars? Physician outreach? Or something entirely new? Check out our survey here!

In collaboration with the GDATF, Yale Oculoplastic & Reconstructive Surgery will host their first thyroid support group meeting on Tuesday, 1/26/2021 at 6pm EST via Zoom. Dr. Larissa Habib, MD, an oculoplastic surgeon, and an endocrinologist will speak briefly about thyroid eye disease, followed by an open session with patient participation. This will be an opportunity to learn more about thyroid eye conditions, such as Graves' disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and euthyroid eye disease. It will allow patients to share information, their experience with their thyroid conditions, and insight on how they are coping, as well as offer support. This meeting is free of charge and open to patients, friends, and family members. If you would like to attend, please contact the GDATF at [email protected] or 877-643-3123, x102. We will provide you with the Zoom link and login information, and will share your info with the team at Yale Oculoplastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
