Rare Disease Day 2021
After a year break due to the COVID pandemic, RareDIG is back on March 6th 2021 to reunite students, researchers, physicians, patients and community members with the third edition of Rare Disease Day. Speakers will discuss the many challenges faced by people with rare disease and the success stories that follow; misdiagnoses and diagnostic odysseys are met with empowerment and optimism. We continue to recognize a collective of individuals focused on rare disease by raising awareness among future health care professionals.
Due to the current public health restrictions, the event will be hosted online on the platform Zoom.
*TED-like talks take the night away - Five diverse perspectives on the present and future of rare disease.*
