Topics Covered: Endocrinologists, surgeons, nuclear medicine physicians, a pathologist, and a palliative care physician will address issues ranging from diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up testing to research advances and future trends in thyroid cancer care. An informal, give-and-take format will give participants the chance for in-depth discussion of issues related to thyroid cancer care.

Workshops led by mental health professionals, attorneys, other specialists, long-term survivors, and caregivers will focus on quality of life, well-being, health insurance and employment issues, caregivers' needs, and the perspectives of long-term thyroid cancer survivors.
