Dr. Pearce is a renowned clinical investigator, endocrinologist and epidemiologist who has made significant contributions in iodine nutrition, thyroid disease in pregnancy, environmental thyroid disrupters and the association of thyroid function with cardiovascular risk. Her internationally cited publications have changed recommendations in the US for iodine supplementation and iodine use in pregnancy. A past President of the American Thyroid Association (ATA), Dr. Pearce is the recipient of the prestigious Van Meter Award and she recently co-chaired the ATA’s Thyroid in Pregnancy Guidelines Task Force. She has been part of the leadership of the Iodine Global Network, a nongovernmental agency devoted to the elimination of iodine deficiency disorders, since 2007.
