Online Support Community
APFED’s online support community, “EOS Connections“, gives patients, caregivers, and family members, whose daily lives are affected by an eosinophil associated disorder, a chance connect with others for support and to share information. EOS Connections is monitored by Inspire and APFED.
Locate Others on Facebook
This map, hosted on Facebook, allows patients and their families to connect, by state and country. lf you choose to add yourself and are on Facebook, click on the box next to your state. In order to view others in your state, click on the number or dots to the right of where your state is listed. Before listing yourself on Facebook, you may want to consider security of the information you make public.
APFED does not have affiliated support groups, but as a courtesy, we provide a list of local eosinophilic support groups that are volunteer-led. Groups provide emotional and educational support and information about local programs, services, social and/or fundraising events for families and individuals with eosinophil-associated diseases. Please verify meeting information, location and times with the group leader prior to attending each meeting because all information is subject to change.
If you do not see your city listed and would like information on how to start your own support group, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. If you are a support group leader and would like to be listed, please e-mail email@example.com.
This list does not imply endorsement or affiliation of any support group with APFED.
