The American Thyroid Association (ATA) — a nonprofit medical society composed of researchers and physicians who specialize in diseases of the thyroid — is dedicated to improving the lives of the millions of Americans of all ages living with thyroid problems. Consequently, the ATA is strongly committed to serving as a resource for the public by promoting the prevention, treatment, and cure of thyroid-related diseases.

Your tax-deductible contribution helps to support valuable patient education and crucial thyroid research – two of our primary goals – with the belief that new discoveries and better understanding will translate into improved ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat thyroid disease.
ATA establishes a named annual meeting program in memory of Dr. Ridgway:
“The E. Chester Ridgway Fellows Conference and Trainee Track”
Ridgway legacy fund created to honor commitment to education, mentorship, scholarship and patient care
The ATA was honored when E. Chester ‘Chip’ Ridgway, MD, founder of the Endocrine Fellows Conference (EFC), was part of the endeavor to combine his program with the ATA Trainees Track creating a seamless 4 1/2 day experience for clinical, basic, surgical trainees throughout the ATA annual meeting.
The ATA expresses tremendous gratitude to our late President Dr. E. Chester ‘Chip’ Ridgway for founding the EFC more than 20 years ago. In his memory, the ATA has created a named fund to support the “E. Chester Ridgway Fellows Conference and Trainee Track” in the years to come. Please lend your support to the “E. Chester Ridgway Fellows Conference and Trainee Track” which will continue his legacy of patient care, education, mentorship and scholarship.
