Do not call EDNF headquarters office as we will only redirect you to the Helpline email address.
EDNF’s mission is to spread awareness and knowledge of EDS, educate medical professionals, and foster and fund research. We do not have physicians in our employ and we have a very small staff. Our Helpline is run by volunteers, not by EDS health care providers or specialists. Contacting one of the Helpline volunteers implies an understanding that it is no substitute for medical advice and/or care by a professional.
