Friends of the ATA
Welcome to Clinical Thyroidology for the Public. In this journal, we will bring to you the most up-to-date, cutting edge thyroid research. We will be providing summaries of research studies that were discussed in a recent issue of Clinical Thyroidology, a publication of the American Thyroid Association for physicians. These summaries are present in lay language to allow the rapid dissemination of thyroid research to the widest possible audience. This means that you are getting the latest information on thyroid research and treatment almost as soon as your physicians. As always, we are happy to entertain any suggestions to improve Clinical Thyroidology for the Public so let us know what you want to see.

We also provide even faster updates of late-breaking thyroid news through Twitter at @thyroidfriends and on Facebook. Our goal is to provide patients with the tools to be the most informed thyroid patient in the waiting room.

In Memoriam

E. Chester Ridgway, MD
January 18, 1942 – July 31, 2014

It is with tremendous sadness and great sense of loss that we have to inform you about the passing of our leader, mentor and friend, Chip Ridgway. Chip was at home with his family. He passed away in peace.

This is a tremendous loss for our field, the ATA, and each of us as individuals who knew Chip.
