San Diego

Local Group of Greater San Diego has meetings on the second Sunday of every month at 1 p.m. at the Cushman Wellness Center, Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion, 3075 Health Center Drive, San Diego. Meetings are held on the first floor. Parking is available at the garage right next to the Outpatient Pavilion for $3 or free with a handicapped card. Parking can usually be found on Health Center Drive with a short walk to the Pavilion.

Our goal is to support each other and share our knowledge and experience with EDS. We also provide education to medical professionals and awareness activities in the community. Everyone is welcome: those diagnosed with EDS or Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, anyone who suspects they have EDS, family, friends and children. Contact Terri at edssandiego@cox.net for more information.

Los Angeles

To learn more about the Zebra Group, contact Donna Acosta at tigermom2@msn.com. We are a group of EDSers that support and help each other and share EDS info with each other. We are a little EDS family who would love to grow with more members! We have monthly meetings just outside of Los Angeles.

Northern California

The volunteers in Northern California have chosen to encourage local support and networking in a form that is less formal than a traditional support group with rigid meeting and governance requirements. We network through online message boards on Inspire and via two different Facebook Group pages: EDS Support of Northern California and EDS Support Group, SF and Northern California. Any individual is welcome to set up a date/time to meet in person. The first step is to identify a place in your area and pick a date/time you want to be there; i.e., at a coffee shop near your home or work. Then invite others to meet you there for an hour by posting an invitation on the Inspire boards, via email, Facebook event, etc.
