Tri-State MD/WV/VA EDS Support Group Meetings

Tri-State EDS, serving the Tri-State Area of Maryland, West Virginia & Virginia has gone to quarterly meetings starting in 2019 – January, April, July & October. November and December’s meetings have been cancelled. We will still meet from 6-8pm on the third Thursday of each month at The Dorothy McCormack Center’s 2nd floor conference room on the campus of WVU-Healthcare Berkeley Medical Center in Martinsburg, WV which is conveniently located off I-81.

Our meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month from 6-8pm right off I-81 in Martinsburg, WV (conveniently located between Hagerstown, MD and Winchester, VA) on the campus of WVU-Healthcare at the Dorothy McCormack Center conference room which is located next to Berkeley Medical Center.

The conference room is on the 2nd floor of the Dorothy McCormack Center. Elevators will be directly in front of you once you enter the main entrance. Take the elevator to the 2nd floor, turn left to walk back the hall, it will be the last door on your right across from the cancer center. We usually try to put up a sign on the door so it is easier for new members to find us.

There is a restroom located in the conference room. Vending machines for snacks and drinks are located in the main entrance. There is plenty of free parking within a very short distance to the main doors on both sides of the building.

We do welcome parents and family members of all patients. Please note that our support group environment is confidential and can be a sensitive place for some. We are trying to form play dates for children under the age of 12 to accommodate everyone’s needs. Please do not let your situation stop you from attending our meetings, do not hesitate to contact our leader to work something out.

Please join our mailing list by emailing us at for updates and cancellations regarding our support group meetings.

For any questions or concerns about meetings please e-mail us at or if need be you can reach our local leader, Ashton Nesmith-Kochera at (240) 520-9053.
