Conference



The Foundation's patient & family conferences are designed to help attendees learn more about Graves’ Disease, thyroid eye disease, and related disorders. Guest speakers include physicians, researchers, and allied health professionals. Attendees will also be able to share their own experiences and connect with fellow patients and family members.

In order to keep registration fees free for attendees, the GDATF will be presenting 1/2 day events, rather than multi-day conferences in 2014 and 2015.

Remaining Educational Events for 2014:

(Events are FREE, but registration is required to reserve space)

Philadelphia, PA - Saturday, Nov. 22nd 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

"Graves' Disease in Children & Adolescents" presented by the GDATF and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Please click here to register.  Registration will close on Saturday, Nov. 14th in order to ensure that adequate parking passes are available.

Please check back for information on our 2015 programming!
