In Episode 31 of Thyroid Answers Podcast, Dr. Eric Balcavage and Dr. Erica Riggleman interview ThyroidChange co-founders Michelle Campeau and Denise Roguz.
ThyroidChange, LLC is a collaborative network, health information website, and social media campaign. The goal of the organization is to unite an international community of medical professionals and patients under the same innovative vision: patients need personalized thyroid care for optimal wellness.
In May of 2012, struggling thyroid patients Michelle Campeau and Denise Roguz united to advocate for expanded laboratory testing and treatment options for suffering thyroid patients everywhere. They drafted the petition, Endocrinologists: Patients with Thyroid Dysfunction Deserve Better Care and the petition’s momentum gave birth to an international network of medical professionals, patients, and organizations with the same vision. This collective effort for ‘change’ soon became the global awareness movement and informational website known as ThyroidChange.
Today, ThyroidChange, LLC represents all thyroid patients at various levels of health, and all practitioners who are seeking better thyroid care. Despite the sheer volume of those united, there is still a long road until all patients have access to personalized thyroid care. Michelle and Denise work to increase awareness and strengthen its international network. ThyroidChange has achieved global recognition by providing testimony to the Scottish Parliament regarding the current state of thyroid care to being mentioned in The Wall Street Journal and many other accomplishments. With over 106K followers on Facebook and thousands more on other social media platforms, ThyroidChange is uniting our community worldwide for better thyroid care.
