Central Illinois EDS Support Group

We are here for those affected by Ehlers-Danlos syndromes in our area. We are based out of our capital city of Springfield and have members spanning the Central Illinois area as well as a few from our surrounding northern and southern areas. We were established in 2012 after seeing a need for support in our region. You can visit our group website on Facebook at For questions by email, write We have occasional casual support group get-togethers to have an opportunity to meet others who understand life with EDS. We look forward to what the future has in store for EDS awareness and support for those in our area.
