McGill's Rare Disease Interest Group
WHO WE ARE
In Fall 2017, a group of McGill Medical Students started the Rare Disease Interest Group (rareDIG), the first student-run, rare disease advocacy group in Canada. We aim to encourage medical students to adopt attitudes that will benefit patients with rare diseases and we continue to provide a platform that promotes discussion and action within our continuously expanding community; raising awareness of rare diseases as a whole. Developing insight into the challenges patients with rare diseases face will inform the advocacy efforts of our colleagues and encourage the creation of public policy that can reduce inequities in care.
