Tucson, AZ

Meets: ThyCa Southern Arizona meets on the third Wednesday afternoon of each month from 3:00 to 4:30 pm. 

Please note that our regular time is now 3:00 to 4:30.

Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, we are exercising an abundance of caution for the well-being of our support group members. As such, we are canceling all scheduled support group meetings for the foreseeable future. Having said this, some support groups are holding virtual meetings in place of their canceled meetings.

Please take care of yourself. We suggest that you follow the precautions recommended by your local health agencies and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. https://www.cdc.gov/

ThyCa Southern Arizona holds FREE virtual meetings at our regular time, 3:00 to 4:30 PM Mountain Time on the third Wednesday of each month. Members of our group or others are welcome. Please e-mail our group facilitators at tucson-az@thyca.org for the instructions on how to join us. Once we give you the instructions, they will be good for all our meetings until ThyCa and our meeting facility approve in-person meetings. We look forward to seeing you there.
