Event details and schedule

(EDS) is a genetic connective tissue disorder in which the body produces faulty or reduced amounts of collagen. Collagen is a protein that acts as“glue” in connective tissue giving it strength and elasticity. The production of faulty connective tissue can affect all body systems including the skin, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, gastrointestinal, neurological and cardiovascular systems and at times can be deadly resulting in rupture of vessels and organs. There are several types of EDS. Vascular EDS is considered the most severe with 80% of afflicted people experiencing a life-threatening complication by the age of 40.
