2022 Global Learning Conference Arizona

August 4-6, 2022

We are delighted to welcome you to register for our 2022 Global Learning Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona! We will be hosting this exciting hybrid event, both in-person and virtually. 

Join individuals and families with EDS and HSD for three days of learning, collaboration, and networking. The conference theme is “EDS and HSD Through a Lifetime” and will feature presentations, case studies, and panel discussions led by experts on the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD). The event is suitable for community members and their friends and families, as well as healthcare professionals who are interested in learning from a lay perspective.

The in-person conference will be held at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa, 5402 E Lincoln Dr, Scottsdale, AZ 85253, United States. Full event information and FAQs can be found here, including information on tickets, registration, COVID-19 precautions, accommodation, and travel. For those unable to travel to join us in person, we will be offering a comprehensive virtual experience with access to our event app, Whova.

Our Junior Zebras program, held concurrently with the main program schedule, will allow our younger attendees aged 6-17 the chance to make friends as they learn more about their condition in a fun and age-appropriate environment.

Healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals, are welcome to join sessions during the three-day period, to learn more about EDS and HSD and how to improve the management and care for their patients.
