More than 80 countries take part annually in Rare Disease Day in support of the millions of affected individuals worldwide. RareDIG’s annual Rare Disease Day celebrates the over 7,000 rare diseases that we know of, and the many we have yet to discover!
RareDIG is excited to reunite students, researchers, physicians, patients and community members with the fourth edition of Rare Disease Day. Speakers will discuss the many challenges faced by people with rare disease as well as the success stories that stem from teamwork, collaboration, scientific advancements, communication, and social support. Misdiagnoses and diagnostic odysseys are met with empowerment and optimism. Please join us in raising awareness for rare diseases among future health care professionals.
The event will be hosted online via Zoom and prizes will be awarded to attendees in a raffle throughout the event.
Please stay tuned for upcoming updates including a list of speakers, awards, and more via our website and social media pages below!
Thank you to all those who take part of this very special day.
