Rare Disease Day
28 February 2019
1600 Rockland Rd, Wilmington, DE 19803, Wilmington, Delaware, United States
Hosted by Delaware HOSA-Future Health Professionals
Delaware HOSA-Future Health Professionals and Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children are partnering for this 5th annual Rare Disease Day to have HOSA members present rare disease posters. HOSA members research a rare disease and interview clinicians, researchers, and family members of children with a rare disease. Once the research is complete, HOSA members create an academic poster with information about the rare disease and present on Rare Disease Day in the beautiful atrium of Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children. The posters will be judged by an esteemed group of researchers and administrators, and HOSA members will be awarded for the content of their posters and presentations.
HOSA members are also fundraising for rare disease research. Thousands of dollars have been raised for rare disease research at Nemours since the start of this event between Delaware HOSA-Future Health Professionals and Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
