September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month Join us for a Twitter Chat on Wednesday, Sept. 26th from 8-9pm ET #ThyCAM2018

Participate in an upcoming live Tweet Chat planned for this Wednesday, September 26th from 8-9pm ET. The chat will be a collaborative effort between the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons (AAES), the American Thyroid Association (ATA) and the Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association (ThyCA).

Join us on Twitter as we explore the following topics that affect thyroid cancer patients:

  1. Tips and tricks for getting through radioactive iodine
  2. What’s it like a year after treatment for thyroid cancer?
  3. Long-term concerns and challenges after treatment for thyroid cancer
  4. What is one thing you would tell someone newly diagnosed with thyroid cancer?

Follow and use #AAESChat and #ATAThyroidChat during the tweet chat, and also use #THYCAM2018 (the general hashtag for Thyroid Cancer Awareness month). Tweet and re-tweet often.
