May 25th: World Thyroid Day

May 25th: World Thyroid Day

May 25th was chosen in 2008 as the World Thyroid Day dedicated to thyroid patients and to all who are committed to the study and treatment of thyroid diseases worldwide.  From LATS, we encourage you to spread what this day means not only among thyroid specialists but also public health policy makers. In 2011, it was the first time that World Thyroid Day was celebrated together by the four Thyroid sister Societies around the world: European Thyroid Association (ETA), American Thyroid Association (ATA), Latin America Thyroid Society (LATS) and the Asia Oceania Thyroid Association (AOTA).

The aims of creating this date were:

1. To boost awareness, through optimal access to education, as to the importance of optimal functioning of the thyroid gland in childhood, during pregnancy, and throughout adult life.
2. To spread the knowledge about new ways of diagnosis and treatment for thyroid disorders.
3. To create programs for education and prevention of thyroid disease.

Remember! Check your thyroid and get connected to your Thyroid Association Community!
