We invite you to join the American Thyroid Association (ATA). The leading worldwide organization dedicated to the advancement, understanding, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disorders and thyroid cancer, the ATA is an international individual membership organization with over 1,600 members from 43 countries around the world. Celebrating its 90th anniversary, ATA delivers its mission through several key endeavors: the publication of highly regarded monthly journals, THYROID, Clinical Thyroidology and Clinical Thyroidology for Patients; annual scientific meetings; biennial clinical and research symposia; research grant programs for young investigators, support of online professional, public and patient educational programs through www.thyroid.org; and the development of evidence based guidelines for clinical management of thyroid disease.
The annual meeting, held every fall, brings together over 1,000 physicians and investigators from around the world to share the newest clinical and basic science research into thyroid disease. The meeting features posters, platform presentations, symposia, “meet the professor” workshops, discussion groups, and distinguished lectures. Awards are made to outstanding clinicians, academicians, young researchers, and dedicated Association members. Selected young investigators receive travel grants to attend the meeting. Every fifth year, the American Thyroid Association joins with the Latin American Thyroid Society, the European Thyroid Association, and the Asia Oceania Thyroid Association for an International Thyroid Congress.
