It’s been a very busy month for the HMSA with the release of new EDS nosology. We’ve prepared some material for people unsettled by these developments in classification: a letter which can be printed and given to medical professionals explaining what the changes mean, and an update for clinicians that contains a simplification of the changes for people working in the MSK field. Both can be found on our website sidebar, appended to an interview with our HSD Ambassador, Hannah Ensor, here: hypermobility.org/hsdandme.
Our major fundraising campaign this summer is in the hands of Keith Diaper, who is completing 52 middle distance triathlons for us between April and September. We’ve successfully launched livechats on our social media during March and look forward to introducing more in the coming months as we work with related organisations to best represent our patient membership.
