For general questions regarding the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD), you may email the Helpline. Your email will be responded to as soon as possible.
Do not call our headquarters office as we will only redirect you to the Helpline email address.
The Ehlers-Danlos Society’s mission is to spread awareness and knowledge of EDS, educate medical professionals, and foster and fund research. We do not have physicians in our employ and we have a very small staff. Our Helpline is run by volunteers, not by health care providers or specialists. Contacting one of the Helpline volunteers implies an understanding that it is no substitute for medical advice and/or care by a professional.
