    The GDATF is excited to announce a multi-day patient conference in San Diego for 2018! The event will take place at the Hilton San Diego Airport/Harbor Island from Thursday night, June 14th to Sunday morning, June 17th. The GDATF’s most recent multi-day conference was hosted in San Diego in 2012. This event was the last of a 19-year streak of patient conferences, branded “A Bridge to Wellness.” In 2013, the GDATF moved away from hosting an annual multi-day conference and instead began scheduling multiple 1/2 day events each year in various locations across the country. This approach has allowed us to reach patients from all over the country at little or no cost to attendees; however, we’ve received feedback from members who miss the old format, which featured in-depth presentations, and an extended opportunity to connect with physicians and fellow patients. We hope that you will join us – please stay tuned for hotel and registration info!

    We have a fabulous program planned for our June 14-17 Patient & Family Conference in lovely San Diego! Still on the fence about attending? Here are two great reasons to register TODAY!

    1. Seats are filling up quickly for the Patient Advisory Board meeting hosted by Horizon Pharma. Space is being offered on a first-come, first-served basis to registered attendees who have been impacted by thyroid eye disease.

    2. Registrants as of June 4th will be included in the advance contact list. (An updated list with ALL attendees will be sent out after the conference, and you can opt out of being included in this list.)

    So…are you in? Visit http://www.gdatf.org to register!
