This collective effort for 'change' soon became the global awareness movement and informational website known as ThyroidChange.

Today, ThyroidChange, LLC represents all thyroid patients at various levels of health, and all practitioners who are seeking better thyroid care. Despite the sheer volume of those united, there is still a long road until all patients have access to personalized thyroid care.
