Are you feeling fatigued? Depressed? Are you experiencing menstrual irregularities or problems with bowel movements? Any or all of these can be symptoms of thyroid disease.

The thyroid is a gland located in the front of the neck that secretes hormones that control many of your body’s functions, such as metabolism and temperature regulation. An over or underactive thyroid can lead to a variety of health problems.

Join Maxwell Kwaku, MD, an endocrinologist with ETMC First Physicians, as he discusses the symptoms and treatment options for thyroid disease.

Parking is available next to the ETMC Pavilion, 801 Clinic Drive in Tyler.

Doors open at 11:15.

Lunch will be served at 11:30.
