HELP TO PROMOTE
RARE DISEASE DAY
This annual event is coordinated by EURORDIS.
Get ready for February 29th 2020!
Hundreds of patient organizations from countries all over the world help to raise awareness.
THE MAIN OBJECTIVE
of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives. For 2019 the theme is ‘Bridging Health and Social Care’. This aligns with IamGSD’s mission to enhance the quality of life of people affected by muscle glycogen storage disease.
Through a variety of campaigns, IamGSD works to raise awareness, provide support, advocate the patient viewpoint, disseminate standards and best practice, contribute to research projects, facilitate communications and ultimately work to reduce the age of diagnosis.
Rare Disease Day is for EVERYONE - patients, family members, friends, clinicians, researchers, & policy makers.
