ThyCa Rochester, NY Support Group

Meets: ThyCa Rochester meets on the second Thursday of every month from 7:00 to 8:00 PM Eastern 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 Rochester holds FREE virtual meetings on the Zoom platform as shown at our regular time, 7:00 to 8:00 PM Eastern Time, on the second Thursday of every month. Members of our group or others are welcome. Please e-mail our group facilitator at rochester-ny@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.

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.
