Buffalo State student Robin Powers has not let her diagnosis of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) stop her from living her best life as she pursues her degree in Biochemical Psychology with a minor in Chemistry.
Robin has volunteered her time to EDS advocacy and awareness serving as a rare disease Advocate with the EDS Cares Network; as an Ambassador at Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute for rare, undiagnosed and chronic diseases; and has attended multiple medical conferences with the National Organization for Rare Disorders.
Her children’s book: Chronicles of Zazzles: Connective Tissue Issues is available in the campus bookstore and online retailers and celebrates EDS awareness.
