Improving Lives Touched by Hypoparathyroidism 



The HypoPARAthyroidism Association is a non-profit patient organization working to improve lives touched by hypoparathyroidism, a rare medical disorder in which the parathyroid glands fail to produce sufficient amounts of the parathyroid hormone, a principal regulator of the body's mineral homeostasis. We are directed by an unpaid volunteer Board of Directors and are overseen by a Medical Advisory Board.


Wanted:  Additional Board Members

The HypoPARAthyroidism Association is looking to add to our Board of Directors to assist us with our work. We are an all-volunteer organization, so if you are interested in rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty, so to speak, please fill out the application and email it to James Sanders at jsanders@hypopara.org  This is an excellent opportunity to help make a difference.
