About The Ehlers-Danlos Society
The Ehlers-Danlos Society is a global community of patients, caregivers, health care professionals, and supporters, dedicated to saving and improving the lives of those affected by the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, hypermobility spectrum disorders, and related conditions.
We support collaborative research and education initiatives, awareness campaigns, advocacy, community-building, and care for the EDS and HSD population.
Our goals are world-wide awareness—and a better quality of life for all who suffer from these conditions. Research is at the center of what we do, so that one day we will have a cure. Our strength begins with hope.
The Ehlers-Danlos Society was originally established as a nonprofit organization in 1985 as the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation (EDNF) by Nancy Hanna Rogowski (1957–1995).
