Becoming Zebra Strong: The Ehlers-Danlos Society Tour 2018

Posted September 7, 2018

Join Lara Bloom, International Executive Director of The Ehlers-Danlos Society, on a special screening tour of “Issues With My Tissues” hosted by our US Affiliates from Providence, Rhode Island to Los Angeles, California. All events are free and open to the public.

“Issues with my Tissues” follows Lara’s journey as she trains to become the first person with EDS to walk the London Marathon in 2011 at the age of 31, despite having barely walked more than three miles at a time before in her life. This moving, informative documentary features interviews with medical professionals, families with EDS, and individuals who have suffered from misdiagnosis.

Lara will answer questions and discuss how to become “zebra strong” in the face of EDS, HSD, and a myriad of related symptoms and associated conditions.

Please RSVP for these events here.
