Thyroid cancer, one of the few cancers that is increasing in overall incidence, will be the focus of the Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ 8th International Conference on October 21-23, 2005, at the Sheraton Denver West Hotel, 360 Union Boulevard, Lakewood, Colorado.

This is the first conference for thyroid cancer survivors and their families and friends to be held in the Rocky Mountain region. The sponsor is the national nonprofit organization ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association, Inc.

More than 60 presentations, workshops, and roundtables are designed for people with every type of thyroid cancer, from those newly diagnosed to survivors of many years, as well as family members and friends.

Physician specialists will speak and answer questions about thyroid cancer research advances, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, and future trends in thyroid cancer care. Self-care, coping skills, emotional and physical well-being, insurance, and employment issues will be covered in sessions led by other specialists, long-term thyroid cancer survivors, and caregivers.

Details and the registration form are available on ThyCa’s web site.Attendees may register online or by mail in advance. Walk-in attendees are also welcome to attend.
