2022 Rare Disease Day

February 28, 2022

Event Navigation

MassBio’s Rare Disease Day recognizes the research being done in Massachusetts to treat and cure rare disease. 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.

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, and a closing patient keynote. Ample networking time will be provided (virtually!).

Alone we are rare, together we are strong.

To inquire about sponsorship opportunities, contact Laura Rudberg.

NOTE: MassBio makes every effort to accommodate our entire community at each of our events. Please let us know at least 3 days in advance of the event if you require special accommodations, such as captioning.
