Dysautonomia International 

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. Our innovative research program focuses on postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).


Since its launch in 2012, Dysautonomia International has raised over $5M for research, education and support. The organization has partnered with autonomic experts at Mayo Clinic, Harvard University, Vanderbilt University, University of Texas Southwestern and many other institutions to advance the pace of research and provide educational programs for physicians and patients alike.

Dysautonomia International created the POTS Research Fund in December 2013 to provide a dedicated stream of funding for POTS research. In the past four years, we have issued nearly $1.7 million in POTS research grants.
