TED Community In-Person Meet Up

Spend the day with us! Interested in hosting a TED in-person meet up? Email your idea to: hello@tedcommunity.org 

In-Person Opportunity 2024
This year we have two great opportunities for an in-person meet up.

In May 2024, we brought together 16 TED patients, including 2 care partners, for a TED Community Builders Workshop. This is for TED patients / advocates who wants to learn more about the TED Community Organization. And would like to bring their interests and talents to our collective effort to expand our reach globally to those who are presently dealing with TED alone, at times filled with fear, and often confused.

The fall TED Community meet up is presently being planned – watch this space!

We cover most expenses.

If you are interested in attending our 2024 in-person Fall meet up, please use the short form on this page to let us know.
