15th International Thyroid Congress


Dear Colleagues,

The Program Organizing Committee is well underway planning the 15th International Thyroid Congress. Representatives from the four international thyroid societies have met in Quebec City (2012) and Lake Buena Vista (2013) for productive and enthusiastic sessions developing the scientific and clinical program that will offer a breadth of thyroid topics of interest to you. We have included an overview of the preliminary meeting program layout for you to view and the important dates to put on your calendar.

International access, beautiful autumn weather and family activities make Lake Buena Vista (Orlando), Florida a great meeting destination for the 15th International Thyroid Congress (ITC) from October 18-23, 2015. Hosted by the American Thyroid Association (ATA), the ITC will bring together the international community of endocrine specialists, surgeons and other health professionals to present and discuss the latest research and developments in thyroidology. The four international thyroid associations combine their efforts to contribute to this one of a kind, state-of-the-science experience! Don't miss this "top of the mark" collegial event.

The ATA meeting organization is well known and well regarded by all those devoted to thyroid biology and to the prevention and treatment of thyroid disease through excellence in research, clinical care, education, and public health.

In terms of logistics: the online registration is reliable and responsive; the hotel reservation system allows all meeting attendees to be confident that a room will be waiting for them upon arrival; the abstract submission and speaker management process is designed with the latest in technology. Registration and meeting program details will be posted at www.thyroid.org in early 2015. The social events will be international in flavor and there will be all day access to a sandy beach and water taxis to Disney World®.

We are very excited about welcoming you to the15th ITC in 2015.
