ThyCa St. Louis, MO Support Group

Meets: ThyCa St. Louis meets the third Saturday of every month from 10:00 to 11:30 AM Central Time.

ThyCa remains cautious due to the evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation. We do expect some support group meeting sites to begin opening for in-person meetings. We realize not all locations will open for the foreseeable future. As such, ThyCa will continue to hold virtual meetings. We encourage all support group members to be careful and stay safe.

Please take care of yourself. We suggest that you follow the precautions recommended by your local health agencies and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. https://www.cdc.gov/

ThyCa St. Louis holds FREE virtual meetings at our regular time, 10:00 to 11:30 AM Central Time on the third Saturday of every month. Members of our group or others are welcome. Please e-mail our group facilitator at StLouis-MO@thyca.org for connection info. We will continue to meet online until the shelter-in-place order has been lifted and ThyCa approves a return to in-person meetings. We look forward to seeing you there.
