Maryland EDS Support Group

The Maryland EDS support group welcomes everyone with EDS and related conditions and their family members. Our group meets quarterly, usually in Ellicott City. We enjoy EDS experts and other knowledgeable speakers at our meetings. We have social get-togethers and other opportunities in between, scattered around the state which gives group members the opportunity to have fun with others who really “get it”. Our Maryland EDS support group provides a Google group for members to discuss local resources, maintains a Doctors List, and has a teen group. We welcome you and those you love to learn how to live better with EDS and make lots of friends in the process. If you would like to learn more or would like to join the Maryland EDS support group, please email Shani and Jill at
