2020 Global Learning Conference – Arizona – Postponed Until 2021

Important Announcement

The Ehlers-Danlos Society Global Learning Conference, Scottsdale, Arizona CANCELED

We cherish the opportunities our in-person events give us: meeting so many of you, and enabling people living with the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and hypermobility spectrum disorders a chance to connect with others sharing similar experiences, yet this year has shown us how much we can accomplish virtually – and how many more people impacted by these conditions round the world we can reach. Due to the continued uncertainty and travel restrictions with COVID-19 [Coronavirus], the Society has had to cancel the conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, which was due to take place on August 5-7, 2021. The well-being of our community is our utmost priority and although the global pandemic has given us many challenges, we are adapting to an exciting virtual events schedule, covering more topics than ever before! 

We are delighted to be hosting several virtual events in 2021  – read more about the full virtual event schedule here! In 2022 we look forward to hosting our Global Learning Conference in North America.
