2/28/2022 10:00:00 AM2/28/2022 12:30:00 PM 2022 Rare Disease Day MassBio recognizes Rare Disease Day by highlighting the research to treat and cure rare diseases happening in Massachusetts. The last day of February has been designated as Rare Disease Day worldwide to raise awareness about the public health issues associated with rare diseases, which affect nearly 30 million Americans and countless others around the world.
This year’s program will focus on how we can better address health inequity and racial disparities among the rare disease community. Attendees will hear an inspiring Possible Talk, an insightful panel of industry, physicians, patients/caregivers, and advocates, along with a closing patient keynote. Ample networking time will be provided (virtually, too!).
