ATA Annual Meeting Case Discussion Presenters

Each year we invite all trainees, fellows, students, and residents who are attending the Annual Meeting of the American Thyroid Association to submit an interesting case(s) for the ATA E. Chester Ridgway Trainee Conference case discussion sessions. Historically three sessions consisted of case presentations by trainees to experts in the thyroid field in the following topic areas Thyroid Nodules, Thyroid Function, and Thyroid Cancer. These sessions are highly interactive, very educational and informative. One presenter from each session chosen at random is awarded a complimentary ATA Banquet Ticket. A call for submissions will go out in July to all of our Associate Members and Program Directors.

We would like to thank the following trainees for presenting their interesting cases and contributing to the Annual Meeting program.
