I wasn't aware of the Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc. before receiving a note recently. I am happy to pass along information about a conference this weekend:
Thyroid cancer survivors and families from around the United States, as well as Canada, Brazil, and United Kingdom, will gather in Danvers, Massachusetts, on October 16-18, 2009, to learn from expert physician specialists about the latest research in thyroid cancer, during the 12th International Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Conference.
Speakers at the more than 100 sessions at the Sheraton Ferncroft Hotel at 50 Ferncroft Road, Danvers, Massachusetts, include more than 30 medical professionals, mental health professionals, an attorney, other specialists in well-being, and thyroid cancer survivors and caregivers. There are speakers about each type of thyroid cancer (papillary, follicular, medullary, anaplastic, and variants), for people of all ages at all phases of testing, treatment, and follow-up.
This educational and supportive event is FREE to anyone who requests a scholarship to cover the $50 registration fee (or $30 for one day). Walk-in attendees are welcome.
