Today is about being the change that we wish to see in our world.

It’s also about being the change we wish to see in the broader chronic illness community, and in the entire medical field. 

It’s about leading by example and collaborating with our partner organizations, or joining those who share a similar vision and wish to find the ways that we can best work together.

Today We Celebrate How Far We’ve Come, Our Journey to Get Here, and a Brighter Future that We are Helping to Create – Collaboratively with Patients, Partner Organizations, and HealthCare Providers. 

Our 2017 Physicians Learning Conference starts tomorrow morning with our first patient case study, followed by a presentation from Dr. Alan Hakim – Chief Medical Advisor & Trustee for the Hypermobility Syndromes Association.

EDS Wellness is thrilled to have such an incredible line-up of speakers for our 2017 Physicians Learning Conference!

We are humbled and grateful for their willingness to speak at this year’s conference, and for their continued support of EDS Wellness’ initiatives and programs.
