2020 May Awareness Month

Submit your acts of awareness today for EDS and HSD Awareness Month!

Join The Ehlers-Danlos Society in celebrating May 2020, as “Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder Awareness Month!”  We are challenging you to help raise awareness globally of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS), and hypermobility spectrum disorder (HSD), by completing a challenge (or as many as you can) during the month of May to help towards our goal of 300,000 acts of awareness around the world!

This year is unique in its circumstances, as our community all around the world find themselves in a novel situation due to COVID-19 [Coronavirus]. It’s now more important than ever to come together as a virtual community. Let’s stay connected, support each other, and raise awareness of EDS and HSD and of issues our community face daily. Together we can dazzle!

Submit your acts of awareness today!
