With your support, RSDSA has been able to accomplish these 2016 Initiatives!

  • Co-sponsored the second summer Camp experience for children in pain.

  • Through the Patient Assistance Program in honor of Brad Jenkins, RSDSA provided funding in the amount of more the $12,000 in emergency financial assistance to individuals with CRPS.
  • Funded an exploratory study of Genetic, Epigenetic, Proteomic, Metabolomics, and Gene Expression on related factors in CRPS at Vanderbilt University.
