Thinking about raising awareness with the medical community? Ask your doctor if you can bring some informational flyers into the office. In High School or College? See if you can have a school event to raise awareness and/or $$ for EDS. Have a child in school? We have some great information for educators and school nurses. Looking for small ways to raise awareness all month long? How about a couple Tee-Shirts you can wear when you go out, you could put a bumper sticker on your car or if you’d rather have something you can wash off, why not decorate your car with one of those window markers you can buy at any craft store? You could be a moving bulletin of EDS information.

Know of an event where we might be able to set up an awareness table this spring/summer, we want to know about it! You can email krista@eds.org, info@eds.org or come join the conversation on Facebook! Having trouble getting approved? Email our Facebook admin at info@rieds.org.
