Please join us for the first Phoenix EDS medical conference where you can hear from some of our amazing local medical professionals who have taken our zebra herd to another level.
Dr. David Saperstein, our keynote speaker will give an overall informational address regarding Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) and how we can better communicate our needs to the medical community.  We will also have two exceptional Physical Therapists, Eric Bloom and Jeffery Petersen speaking as to the importance and benefits of the right PT.  Joe Pongratz will provide an overall look at some of the durable medical equipment and braces that are available and how they can benefit those with EDS. We also have a Primary Care Physician and a Pediatric Cardiologist.

A variety of vendors and exhibitors that support the needs of those with EDS and its comorbidities will also be in attendance. Check out our Sponsors Page.
