International Thyroid Awareness Day 2020, #ITAW20, was 25th May 2020 marking the start of International Thyroid Awareness Week, which ran until 31st May.
We at The Thyroid Trust were out and about raising awareness and celebrating thyroid patients in the UK.
As a new and tiny charity we need your help to make some noise!
It's harder than ever for thyroid patients' issues to be heard, during these difficult times and of course, we all want to support the NHS to focus on beating the Covid19 pandemic at the moment, first and foremost, since it's such a huge global threat.
But let's not let this date go by unmarked, it's our day, as people affected by thyroid disease. Our day to acknowledge each other and perhaps take some time to let those around us know a bit more about thyroid health issues.
After all, thyroid disease can often run in families. How much do our loved ones know about thyroid conditions, what to look out for in case they start to become ill and they can best support you, or any of their friends or other family members who may become unwell with thyroid disease.
for everyone affected by thyroid disease
