Upcoming Support Group Meetings and Educational Webinars

Across the U.S. and Canada, Support Groups bring people together to share their feelings of living with Willis-Ekbom disease, formerly known as restless legs syndrome or RLS, to discuss ways to communicate with their families and friends about this disorder, to learn about the latest treatments, and to arm themselves with information to educate healthcare providers about Willis-Ekbom disease. The Foundation is also providing free Webinars to help educate those living with WED/RLS on various topics. All the support group meetings and Webinars are free to attend. Here are upcoming meetings:
