The Rhode Island Ehlers Danlos Syndrome & CTD Awareness and Support group started in March 2013 and is run by its founder Krista Brack with administrators Ellen Smith and Virginia Law. We are a support group for those with all types of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and related connective tissue disorders; their caregivers, family and friends. We focus much of our time raising awareness in our community about connective tissue disorders and supporting our members with up to date information, monthly in-person meetings, a Facebook support group, social activities, and yearly awareness events.
