Rare Disease Day 2017
Today is the tenth annual observance of Rare Disease Day, a day that brings awareness and highlights the importance of research and treatment of rare diseases. This year’s theme revolves around research- not only recognizing the critical role that research plays but also knowledge and awareness of the importance of this research in the rare disease community.
“Research is key and brings hope to many people living with rare disease.”
Research for rare diseases has increased and with funding allocated specially to this research community, the hope is that it will continue to grow. There are many initiatives that support international research, which is important to ensure that clinicians and patients are connected and benefit from the pooling of resources. We have seen this international growth first-hand with rare-disease studies utilizing our patient travel services, where we are able to provide patients with travel coordination.
