EOS Connections is an online community where patients, caregivers, and family members, whose daily lives are affected by an eosinophil associated disorder, can connect with others for support and to share information.
APFED, the American Partnership for Eosinophilic Disorders, a 501(c)3 organization founded in 2001, is currently the largest patient advocacy organization supporting those affected by eosinophil associated disorders, including eosinophilic esophagitis, eosinophil-associated gastrointestinal disorders, hypereosinophilic syndrome, and Churg-Strauss syndrome.
We are a resource for patients, their families, physicians and the medical community. APFED is dedicated to patients and their families coping with eosinophilic disorders. APFED provides accurate, up-to-date information on eosinophilic disorders and related problems. Our goals are to increase awareness, educate patients and physicians, increase funding for research and provide support for the eosinophilic community.
The information provided in our community, EOS Connections, is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/APFED member and his/her physician. Please verify any information you receive from APFED with other sources and with your licensed health care provider. Decisions regarding medical care should be made with your healthcare provider.
