  • Why Become An ATF Member?

HOW MEMBERSHIP CAN HELP YOU & WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN US 

Understanding your thyroid disorder can be a complex and personal matter. 

Where do you go and how do you gain access to the right information to manage your thyroid condition and get back to good health?
How do you know if the medication and treatment prescribed by your doctor is going to work for you?

Many of our members talk about the frustration they felt and the lack of available information to manage their thyroid disorder before they were members. 

Joining the Australian Thyroid Foundation from as little as $40 per year will provide you access to a range of information and valuable support. 

Our members say the decision to join will change your life, as it has theirs.            

The Australian Thyroid Foundation (ATF) is a member based organisation – our members, YOU, are the heart of our organisation. The ATF is managed by an Executive Committee and Medical Advisory Board.  All Executive Committee members are volunteers, most of whom have a thyroid disorder and understand thyroid health issues from personal experience.  Our Medical Advisory Board are all Australian world leaders, who specialise in all aspects of thyroid disease and volunteer their valuable time with thyroid communications, representing the ATF and speaking on our behalf. This means member information and support services are provided by people who understand how thyroid disease can affect you and who empathise with how difficult it can be to understand to manage your thyroid condition, understand your needs and guide you in the right direction.

Through membership, we help you manage your thyroid health by providing the best information, education and support possible. Understanding your thyroid disorder through the ATF member services will give you confidence,  you are not alone and there is help available through one-on-one support.
