Hello Dear Thyroid!!

This is my first post and I am super excited to be a part of such a fantastic organization!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of such an amazing community.  I am thrilled to help facilitate and organize Dear Thyroid Meet Ups and support groups.  It is so powerful to be able to meet with other thyroid patients, make connections, and provide offline support for each other.  And of course, we are here to help support this process every step of the way!  I am pleased to announce that we have some interest in meet ups in:

  • Ohio
  • Boston
  • Atlanta
  • Pasadena
  • Pittsburgh
  • Chicago
  • The Los Angeles Meet-up has lots of people, so come and join Katie and Nicole. Here are the details.

Please email me if you are in these areas and would like to meet up. From there, we will schedule the time, date, and arrange the place.  Please look for ongoing posts regarding meet ups and support groups!!

If you don’t see your location listed, let me know in comments or email.

Bug hugs,

Please note: All local meet-ups must be in public locations; coffee shops/restaurants, etc. Post meet-up, we want to hear all about it. Please email us a blurb about your meet-up and what the experience was like for you. We are HUGE proponents of offline support.

Be Sociable, Share!

  8. coffeedog says:

    I don’t suppose there’s any point in putting Mississippi on the list? Oh well, do it anyway. I guess. 😉

  9. Dear Thyroid says:

    Coffee Dog, of course there is a point! We are going global with our meet-ups and offline support groups. Wherever your location is, we want to have a meet-up and get you connected with other patients.

  10. Thank you, Kerri, for heading this up! xoxo
