Caring for Underserved Populations with Thyroid Disease
More common than both diabetes and heart disease, Thyroid Disease is a chronic issue that directly impacts more than 27 million Americans. About half of those suffering from Thyroid Disease have yet to receive a diagnosis. In addition, women are at a substantially higher risk for developing a thyroid disorder than are men. This section provides links to educational resources for clinical professionals and patients for both the awareness of Thyroid Disease and the management of its care. The resources are designed to help safety net providers meet the needs of their patients.
