Happy New Year 2017!
Our first meeting of 2017 kicks off with a planning session for the year ahead. This will be a workshop style meeting; we want your input! We will be asking our members what speakers they would like to have in 2017. We will also talk about the different conferences happening in 2017, plan May awareness events and share upcoming advocacy opportunities. We will be meeting in the SMALL meeting room this month!
Come learn about EDS, make some friends and help us plan 2017 to make it our best year yet!

Once we have concluded this portion of our meeting, we are going to take a break. (around 2 PM)
After the break, we will have our third ‘Share n Care’ program that will be a time for everyone to share anything that has helped improve the quality of their life and or care through the years. We encourage attendees to bring items that they can talk about and share with all our members.
