ThyCa Madison, WI Support Group

Meets: The Madison, WI Support Group meets virtually on the second Saturday of every month from 2:00 to 3:30 PM on the Zoom platform.

If you plan to attend a meeting, please RSVP by email to madison-wi@thyca.org before 7:00 PM on the Friday before the meeting. The meeting will be canceled if no one emails prior to 7:00 PM that Friday.

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/

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.
