About Dysautonomia International & the POTS Research Fund

 

POTS is estimated to effect approximately 1-3 million Americans, mostly young women. Despite its prevalence, most people have never heard of POTS. Many doctors are unfamiliar with POTS, which makes getting a diagnosis and proper treatment extremely difficult. There is little that doctors understand about POTS and a tragic lack of funding for ongoing research.

 

All funds raised during the 2020 POTS Walk #STEPtember Challenge will support Dysautonomia International's POTS Research Fund, with grants going to fund the work of Early Career Investigators to promote interest in POTS by the next generation of researchers. 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, we have issued nearly $1.8 million in POTS research grants. Dysautonomia International is the largest non-governmental source of POTS research funding in the world.

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. 

Working together, we can #CurePOTS!
