Connect with Others

As a patient, healthcare provider, family member or friend, we invite you to connect with the Willis-Ekbom Disease (WED) Foundation. We offer 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 and research funds for this common, but often misunderstood, disease.

Here are a few ways you can Connect with Others:

Blog | Discussion board | Facebook & Twitter | Contact the Foundation

Through Membership

Join the WED Foundation and be part of finding a cure for WED/RLS. Your membership includes benefits such as our quarterly newsletter, NightWalkers, and access to research findings, archived webinars and newsletters, and much more.  Most importantly, you'll know that you are making a difference in the lives of millions of people and families dealing with WED/RLS.

Through Education

Visiting a local WED/RLS support group or attending an online patient webinar offers great opportunities to connect with others while expanding your knowledge of your disease and how to best manage it. Support group meetings are held in over 50 communities in the U.S and Canada. Find a meeting near you or find a volunteer in your area.

Through Volunteering
