Meets: ThyCa Long Island meets the second Sunday of each month, except May, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM.  Please call to confirm meetings, especially if you drive a long distance.

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 Long Island holds FREE virtual meetings on the Zoom platform as shown in the calendar below, at our regular time, 1:00 to 3:00 PM Eastern Time. Members of our group or others are welcome. Please e-mail our group facilitator at longisland-ny@thyca.org for connection info. We will continue to meet online until the shelter-in-place order has been lifted and ThyCa approves a return to in-person meetings. We look forward to seeing you there.

Nothing discussed at a support group should be considered as a replacement for a doctor's care. We do not give medical advice. We do share support and our own experiences. We are each ultimately responsible for our own care.
