Change is good. And we like to create change.

EDS Wellness is thrilled to launch the 1st (& only) eLearning platform devoted to providing EDUCATION & Integrative SOLUTIONS to help restore function and live well. Join Us! 

Oh …. and we now offer yearly memberships options too!

Information on EDS Wellness’ new eLearning platform, including details on yearly membership options, will be shared slowly, as we roll-out the program specifics and go through the implementation process. Specifically, we do feel that it is important to share EDS Wellness’ thought process and patient-focused strategy for investing time and funds into building this type of learning option for our community, including the development of specific courses and creating new content – consistently, and why we feel providing this resource is critical.

We are excited to share what we have planned, our hope and vision for the future and much more! Please share your thoughts with us and we are always happy to answer questions! Please send an email to [email protected].

Background

We needed to create a strategy that blended our mission to help cultivate globally available patient and provider resources, an interest in doing all things virtual, and the desire to create a solutions-focused learning resource, together with wellness education and movement instruction, program development focused on strategies for restoring function and living well, and EDS Wellness’ critical in-the-moment need to somehow support everything just mentioned.

Additionally, part of our mission is to develop print and digital educational materials and resources to help our members restore function and live well. A good amount of our print and digital resources are provided at no charge to our members. Still, the development of and continued availability for many of our projects and programs require considerable financial investment upfront to create, and also require monthly or yearly fees to ensure that our resources are easily accessible. EDS Wellness had to find a solution to help support our monthly maintenance costs; thus, ensuring that our resources remained readily available no matter what. After researching options and looking into how other nonprofits help sustain their inherent costs of “doing business,” membership options became the clear first-step solution to help maintain EDS Wellness’ status as an active nonprofit and sustain our current programs and available resources.

Hence, the “how” yearly memberships to EDS Wellness came to fruition, and the “why” the new eLearning platform and its courses, our previously available resources and recently implemented membership options have been linked together.

About EDS Wellness’ eLearning Platform

EDS Wellness’ eLearning platform is a valuable resource for sharing much-needed information and solutions-focused programs through online, easy-to-access lessons, courses, educational videos and related materials. Our’ “virtual” classroom also offers a coarse and content-related community groups and support forums, in addition to the required tools for providing approved continuing medical education (CME) activities for healthcare providers online.

Please keep in mind that the videos and materials for a few of our available courses will be added continuously throughout the year and as pertinent content is completed. Some of our “courses” are a compilation of edited class videos, or are a combination of gathered resources pertaining to a specific topic. Others may include conference materials, presentation slides, event recordings, new or previously recorded videos, or other useful resources. We also have several lessons planned and additional courses developed — waiting for us to acquire the necessary equipment and hone the best process(es) for sharing and updating content regularly. Finally, we feel ready.
