Founded in 1990 as the National Graves' Disease Foundation, the GDATF has been providing help and hope to patients and family members for two and a half decades! GDATF Founder and Chair Emeritus Nancy Hord Patterson, Ph.D., recalls, “When I was initially diagnosed...I began to look for information, and for people to talk to that had faced the same concerns. When this proved impossible, I began an effort to start this Foundation. With the support of my Endocrinologist and Reconstructive surgeon, I was led to medical experts both nationally and internationally who were most willing to share their expertise.”
