ATA Mission

The American Thyroid Association is the leading organization devoted to thyroid biology and to the prevention and treatment of thyroid disease through excellence in research, clinical care, education, and public health.

Over 20 million Americans have been diagnosed with thyroid disease, and the American Thyroid Association believes that is only the tip of the iceberg. It is estimated that 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are undiagnosed. While thyroid diseases and thyroid cancers are not always deadly, they can be, especially if left untreated. That's why increasing awareness of thyroid diseases is so vital and why raising money to support research, education, and resources for the patients and their families is so vital. That is why we are so greatful to runners and their supporters for making such a positive impact on the lives of patients, their families and the physicians and scientists who treat and research thyroid diseases and thyroid cancer.

Since 1923, the American Thyroid Association (ATA) has served as the professional organization to leading researchers and clinicians in the field of thyroidology--men and women who are at the forefront of thyroid treatments and research. Current membership exceeds 1700 from 43 different countries. Through our website, publications, and Patient Alliance, the ATA brings the expertise of these outstanding professionals to patients, their families and the public, providing  a  trustworthy resource of information on thyroid issues. In an internet era, where misinformation abounds, it is reassuring to know you can rely on the ATA to provide you with the updated, scientifically sound basis for understanding thyroid diseases and managing your thyroid condition.
