Secretary - Dr Buchi Okosieme MD FRCP
I am a consultant endocrinologist at Cwm Taf University Health Board in Wales. My speciality interest is in thyroid disorders and I am affiliated to the Cardiff University School of Medicine Thyroid Research Group.
My current research interests are in improving thyroid disease outcomes through analysis of linked datasets.
Thyroid disorders are prevalent worldwide and affect people of all ages. Uncorrected thyroid disease carries significant morbidity with important implications for the pregnant woman and unborn child. The BTA aims to promote research, create awareness, and support high-quality clinical care that will ultimately improve the lives of people with thyroid diseases. It is a privilege to serve on the executive committee and to work with a team of dedicated professionals and patient representatives towards achieving this goal.
