|Other Notes:||This support group is for patients (and/or family members) with thyroid disease or thyroid cancer. The purpose of the group is to provide a venue for support and education; we do not provide medical advice.
|Special Events:||November 18, our guest speaker will be Leslie Groves, pharmacist from Brockville Rexall. She will discuss taking and storing your medication, different types of thryoid medications, and uses and interactions of supplements (e.g., calcium) with thyroid medications.
December 16, our guest speaker will be Dr. Clara Irobi, an endocrinologist who sees many of the patients in our region on OTN (Telemedicine). She will discuss types of thyroid cancer and other thyroid diseases.
Nothing discussed at a support group should be considered as a replacement for a doctor's care. We do not give medical advice. We do share support and our own experiences. We are each ultimately responsible for our own care.
