It’s World Thyroid Awareness Day; do you know where your thyroid is?

How many of you have encountered someone who has NO idea what a thyroid is or where it’s located in the body? Sometimes, we need to get back to the basics. So starting today and throughout the rest of the week, we’re challenging you to ask at least three people, “Do you know where your thyroid is?” We are challenging you to use this opportunity to educate your friends and family about the importance of knowing the signs of a thyroid that isn’t functioning properly. We’re also challenging you to teach others how to do a proper neck check. Great resources are available for you and your friends at www.worldthyroidday.com. After you complete your challenge, report back here and let us know how it went by leaving a comment on this post. And because we think laughter is great medicine, we also want to hear the funniest response you’ve ever heard to “Do you know where your thyroid is?” We can’t wait to hear back from you!
