Would you like to speak to others living with EDS and HSD but can’t get to any support group meetings, events, or conferences?
Our weekly, monthly, and quarterly virtual support groups for people from all over the world are a chance to come and share your story and chat with others for support.
Meetings are facilitated by staff from The Ehlers-Danlos Society. Attendees who wish to participate in the discussion must join the meeting through the Zoom platform. You can use Zoom with a webcam or just audio, whichever you prefer. Calls are intended for support and networking; medical advice will not be given on the calls.
