ABOUT THE POTS WALK
POTS stands for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, which is a disorder of the autonomic nervous system, a form of dysautonomia. POTS is estimated to impact between 1,000,000 and 3,000,000 Americans, and millions more around the world. Despite its prevalence, most people have never heard of POTS. Many doctors are unfamiliar with POTS, which can make getting a diagnosis and proper treatment extremely difficult.
All funds raised during POTS Walk events will support Dysautonomia International's POTS Research Fund. Dysautonomia International created the POTS Research Fund in December 2013 to provide a dedicated stream of funding for POTS research. In the past five years, over $3 million in POTS research grants have been awarded.
Dysautonomia International is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that seeks to improve the lives of over 70 million individuals around the world living with disorders of the autonomic nervous system. The organization offers patient and physician education resources, community outreach, legislative advocacy and patient support for all autonomic disorders. Dysautonomia International is also the largest non-governmental source of POTS research funding in the world!
