Together Growing Stronger - Together Making a Difference

Our mission is to improve the lives of people with all forms of hypoparathyroidism, a rare medical disorder, by maintaining a worldwide network of support, and promoting public, as well as professional, awareness of this disorder through education with our website, quarterly newsletter, periodic conferences and webinars; and fundraising to support research. 

Early in 1994 the idea of an association for hypoparathyroidism patients was slowly hatched in Idaho Falls, Idaho.  Later that summer, the first issue of our newsletter was sent out. The newsletter evolved into what is now known as the Hypoparathyroidism Association, Inc., with membership worldwide exceeding 4500 members in 69 countries.

Prior to the summer of 1994 there was no recognized association for hypoparathyroidism patients in the world.  Since then, similar associations have been founded by members of our association in the United Kingdom, the Nordic Countries and the European countries. 

In the end we hope to be able to say we have made a difference, as we strive to help hypoparathyroidism patients worldwide realize, often for the first time in their lives, they are people with a disease, and not just a disease with people.  They are not alone any more.
