2014 Physicians Conference

Join us for our first ever Physicians Conference!

The 2014 EDNF Physicians Conference is designed to increase overall knowledge of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome on the part of physicians and other medical professionals that currently work with EDS patients or are planning to in the future. Join us on September 15, 2014, to learn more about EDS and then bring that knowledge back to your patients. Expected CME value: 6 credits.
