McCall McPherson is the founder of Modern Thyroid Clinic, a thyroid-centered functional medicine practice in Austin, Texas, the now owner and Chief-Thyroid-Hope-Giver of Thyroid Nation. She is a physician assistant, recent TEDx speaker and a thyroid expert by way of being a thyroid patient. Her passion for perfecting thyroid treatment stemmed from years of her suffering due to the mismanagement of her own hypothyroidism. Now she lives, breathes and thrives in understanding the nuances of proper thyroid care. Her philosophy is simple: There is no reason to still have thyroid symptoms. She spends her time helping to make it so by helping her patients get their lives back and teaching and advocating for the other millions suffering who aren’t her patients.
