Katie Schwartz and Nicole Wells are hosting a Dear Thyroid Meet-up in Los Angeles on Sunday, July 25th. Your presence is requested! This meet-up is for all thyroid patients and their families, if families choose to come. We are so excited about this meeting. We have lots of members in the Los Angeles area, and we can all use offline support. Please see the DEAR THYROID CALENDAR for details!

If you are interested in hosting or participating in a LOCAL DEAR THYROID MEET-UP, in your area, please let us know:

  • We will help you get it scheduled
  • Connect you with patients in your area
  • Calendar it on the official Dear Thyroid calendar
  • We want to hear all about your wonderful experience and what it felt like to connect offline via a blog post
  • If you want to take pictures, great. If not, that’s great, too. We want to hear all about your experience.

Online support is amazing. We’ve become a wonderfully close thyamily. As a result, we believe that offline support is of equal importance. In fact, we’ve had some fantastic local Dear Thyroid Meet-ups. <- You can read all about them by clicking that link.

    Greetings from your friend Bara who has graves disease and would love to join your meeting July 25th!

    You may share my story as well which, if one googles me you can find my story that I wrote for the NATIONAL GRAVES DISEASE FOUNDATION, google picked it up and posted it. I wrote it for the foundation, it help me process how I felt, how people treated me when I was really ill…it does help to write about your illness…( google – barbara leigh has graves).

    Please email me regarding your meeting and once we meet up would love to get more involved and help host future meetings, if I’m needed.

    Thank you,
    Barbara Leigh
