Rare Disease Day

I’m home woo hoo.

Today is Rare Disease Day.


The last day of February has been designated as worldwide “Rare Disease Day” to call attention to the public health issues associated with rare diseases, which affect nearly 30 million Americans and countless others around the world.

For more information about Rare Disease Day activities in the U.S., go to NORD’s website (http://www.rarediseases.org). For information about the global observance, go to www.rarediseaseday.org.
