Connect with Others
Ways to Connect
As a patient, healthcare provider, family member or friend, you are invited to connect with the Willis-Ekbom Disease (WED) Foundation (formerly the Restless Legs Syndrome Foundation).
You have many opportunities to learn about Willis-Ekbom disease (also known as restless legs syndrome or WED/RLS), volunteer your time, or help us raise awareness for this common, but often misunderstood, disease.
Here are a few ways you can Connect with Others:
We invite you to join the Foundation and be part of finding a cure for WED/RLS. Your membership includes benefits such as a subscription to our quarterly newsletter NightWalkers, a special accommodations card, Medical Bulletin to share with your doctor, medical alert card, magnet and the knowledge that you are making a difference in the lives of people with WED/RLS. Click here for a list of member benefits or to become a member.
Visiting a local WED/RLS support group or attending an online patient seminar offers great opportunities to connect with others while expanding your knowledge of your disease and how to best manage it. Find meetings here. Support group meetings are held in over 50 communities in the U.S and Canada. Find a volunteer in your area here.
Donate your time to one of our Awareness Day activities, help organize an online educational event, or become a local support group leader or contact. Please contact us today to add your voice to our awareness and advocacy efforts or receive information about future activities in your area.
