Dr. Brad Tinkle, Clinical Genetecist, referred to the clinical and molecular importance and its role in the genetic cause of EDS. Mrs. Sandy Schack, Chair of the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome National Foundation, USA, commented about the foundation's role and function with particular reference to its educational role.
