hEDS patient and Harvard PhD increasing awareness around chronic illness

Jess Has EDS: a blog about chronic illness research

Welcome to Jess Has EDS! Join me as I discuss the science and research behind chronic illnesses (with a focus on hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome [hEDS] and related conditions). I also write about my experiences with navigating the US healthcare system and living with chronic illness. I’ll use my research skills that I developed while earning my PhD in Biological and Biomedical Sciences from Harvard University to dig into the current knowledge and scientific research on chronic illness and then translate it into accessible language that is easy for nonscientists to understand.

All opinions expressed on this page are my own. I am not a medical doctor and nothing that I write should be taken as medical advice. Please talk to your healthcare team about anything that sparks your interest here.
