Founders Circle

2017 marks our 32nd year—and four major advances in Ehlers-Danlos research, diagnosis, and management:

  • Launch of The International Consortium on EDS and Related Disorders
  • First comprehensive international classification in nearly two decades, coinciding with the publication of our own supplement to the American Journal of Medical Genetics in March 2017
  • Launched first comprehensive genetic study of hypermobile EDS
  • Initial formation of the first-ever global registry for Ehlers-Danlos syndromes

We like to say, “Our strength begins with hope.”

Today, for many throughout the world, we believe we’ve found greater hope than ever, knowing for the first time since Ehlers-Danlos was first identified that hundreds of medical professionals are now working together throughout the world to:

  • Identify the underlying causes behind EDS/HSD
  • Advance the methodology and criteria necessary for early diagnosis
  • Develop next generation treatments and management options 

Join us.

Help us help each other—and answer the challenge to build a new foundation for:

  • Early diagnosis
  • Clear, consistent diagnostic criteria
  • Effective treatment, management, and care guidelines

Yes, our strength begins with hope—and our hope begins with you.
