2021 E. Chester Ridgway Conference 

The Ridgway conference is a must-view educational event for trainees, clinicians, researchers, and advanced healthcare professionals at any career level that interested in expanding their knowledge of thyroid physiology, thyroid-related diseases and disorders. The two-day meeting includes popular talks on thyroid function, thyroid testing, thyroid physiology, thyroid nodules, ultrasound and cancer. 

The first session includes basic, clinical, and surgical topics of interest to all focusing on thyroid hormone synthesis, action and metabolism. Followed by two “breakout” sessions — one for the basic scientists and translational researchers, and the other for the surgeons and clinicians, with topics geared towards the specific interests of those registrants.  

The last session begins with a lecture on Thyroid Eye Disease Overview (sponsored by Horizon Therapeutics) and is followed by a Thyroid Ultrasound and Nodules course and Thyroid Tumor Board.
