Rare
Disease day 2018

On February 28th 2018, rareDIG played host to over 100 students, researchers, physicians, patients and community members in honour of Rare Disease Day. Speakers discussed the many challenges faced by people with rare disease and the success stories that followed; misdiagnoses and diagnostic odysseys were met with empowerment and optimism. In recognizing a collective of individuals focused on rare disease, we took a large step forward in raising awareness among future health care professionals.

 

The rareDIG committee would like to thank the speakers, attendees and supporters who made our first Rare Disease Day event possible!
