Awareness Event Opportunity

Miriam Hospital Awareness Event: A full week of awareness 8am to 5pm daily. We need you to help out! Sign up to be a volunteer by emailing Krista – Krista@rieds.org or you can also sign up on our Facebook page in the events area, please note what time slot you will be filling in for.

Starts: Monday May 4th 2015

Ends: May 8th 2015

We will have a table set up directly outside of the cafeteria on the first floor of Miriam Hospital.

We will have a table with our Proclamation displayed as well as a couple of small posters with EDS information, information to hand out like the EDNF brochures and others. We are looking for people to man the table a few hours a day; we are looking for people who want to help that have been affected by EDS (yourself, friend or family member). You don’t need to be overly knowledgeable about EDS to participate, We will have all the information to provide. The most important thing is to be non-confrontational, be pleasant, we want to be remembered well and invited back again next year. That doesn’t mean you can’t disagree, we had some wonderful discussions happening last year and everyone was great. Be pleasant, friendly and neat, those are the only responsibilities involved! It will be fun to get out and raise awareness for EDS, connective tissue disorders and related conditions, and maybe make a new friend while you are at it.
