Biography

Dr. Sawka is an internationally recognized endocrinologist and clinical epidemiologist. Her research has utilized mixed methods to improve access to and outcomes of care for people with thyroid cancer. In particular, her research has been critical to informing the clinical use of radioactive iodine (RAI) in thyroid cancer. Through systematic reviews and meta-analyses, Dr. Sawka has demonstrated a lack of evidence to support the use of radioactive iodine (RAI) in people with low risk thyroid cancers. To ensure the dissemination of this knowledge into clinical practice, she co-founded the first American Thyroid Association (ATA) standing committee on Guidelines and Statements and co-chaired their Task Force on Guidelines and Statements policies and procedures. She has also served on multiple international committees related to thyroid cancer.
