A Thanksgiving Message from WiRED International

Posted on

WiRED International’s board and volunteers wish you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

This American holiday is about sharing, and this year that must include the sharing of good health practices as COVID-19 cases and deaths are increasing everywhere at an alarming rate. Counter to the large celebrations we have come to expect at Thanksgiving, people this year are wise to avoid gatherings of more than a few close family members, to maintain social distance, to wash hands often and to wear a mask.

Thyroid disorders exist globally, but especially in countries where health care is scarce and testing is rare. In October WiRED International released a Thyroid Diseases Module in response to an urgent request from our partners in Armenia, specifically from Arpine Baghdoyan, who is the Near East Foundation’s Country Director, Armenia. Armenia suffers from an alarmingly high incidence of thyroid issues, and now WiRED offers the module translated into the Armenian language: Վահանագեղձի հիվանդություններ.
