Congratulations to Dr. David Saperstein for winning the 2021 Community Choice Award for Outstanding Healthcare Professional from the Ehlers-Danlos Society.
Az Zebras is a rare condition support group for Arizona. This includes conditions such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Dysautonomia, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, MALS, Sjogren’s, and more.
Zebra’s as well as their support systems including family and friends are welcome at our meetings. Medical providers who are interested in learning more about these rare conditions and/or helping Zebra patients are also welcomed to join us and to contact us for more information.
Why the Zebra?
Medical scholars have been taught for years that “When you hear hoofbeats in the night, look for horses — not zebras.” (https://quoteinvestigator.com/2017/11/26/zebras/) In other words, look for the common and typical, not the surprising, unusual diagnosis.

A group of zebras is called a dazzle and we believe our Az Zebras will Dazzle their way through the community.
