World Thyroid Day – 25th May
World Thyroid Day takes place on 25th May each year. World Thyroid Day aims at increasing public awareness of thyroid deceases, namely the importance of their timely diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
Thyroid disorders are very common worldwide, they affect people of all ages and have a large range of symptoms.
The most common thyroid disorders include hyperthyroidism (abnormally increased thyroid activity), hypothyroidism (abnormally decreased thyroid activity), thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland) and thyroid cancer and are often caused by iodine deficiency.
ISE, as a global federation of endocrine societies, believes education plays a role of paramount importance in making this happen. Therefore, we want to share our resources with our community and disseminate education globally but, most importantly, in underserved regions of the world.
We encourage you to check our resources by creating a free account today on the ISE Global Education Hub and access all our thyroid-related accredited materials:
