The Graves' Thyroid Disease Foundation will host a support group meeting from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, in the Scottsdale Public Library's Mustang branch book discussion room, 10101 N. 90 St., Scottsdale. Featured presenter David M. Baldwin will address "Applying for Social Security Disability: Pitfalls and Opportunities."

Graves' Disease is caused by a defect in the immune system in which antibodies attack the thyroid gland, often resulting in hyperthyroidism. Complications of improperly treated Graves' disease can include heart failure, osteoporosis, severe emotional disorders and thyroid storm, which can be fatal.

Support Group meetings are open to all patients with thyroid disorders and their friends and family members. Meetings are free, but RSVPs are requested to Kimberly Dorris at (480) 661-1169 or phoenix.gdf@cox.net.
