What is the EDS ECHO Challenge?

Join The Ehlers-Danlos Society to help increase awareness of EDS and HSD among healthcare professionals, globally, by taking on the EDS ECHO Challenge! EDS ECHO is a free, virtual program from The Ehlers-Danlos Society, for healthcare professionals, across all disciplines, living anywhere in the world. There are several programs taking place via Zoom, educating healthcare professionals to improve their knowledge to better care for their patients with EDS, HSD, and associated symptoms and conditions. Continuing Education credits are available at no charge to participants.

The EDS ECHO challenge is a great way to raise awareness from wherever you are in the world, and counts as 5 Acts of Awareness towards the 150,000 global total this May!
