ThyCa Long Island meets the second Sunday of each month, except May, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern Time.
See Special Events below for information about our guest speaker on November 13.
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.
ThyCa Long Island holds FREE virtual meetings on the Zoom platform as shown at our regular time, 1:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern Time. Members of our group or others are welcome. Please e-mail our group facilitator at firstname.lastname@example.org for connection info.
