Event Details

The last day of February has been designated as Rare Disease Day in Massachusetts to call attention to the public health issues associated with rare diseases, which affect nearly 30 million Americans and countless others around the world. The event recognizes Rare Disease Day and the research being done in Massachusetts to treat and cure rare disease.

This year’s agenda will feature two panels: one from the patient perspective on how they’ve turned their diagnoses into their life’s work, finding empowerment through advocacy and action; and one from the industry’s perspective on how researchers and providers are not only tailoring a therapy for a specific patient but also the entire patient experience, and how this outlook has shaped their careers.

Alone we are rare, together we are strong.
