‘Rare Disease Day’ takes place worldwide, typically on or near the last day of February each year, to raise awareness among policymakers and the public about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.
Each year, NCATS and the NIH Clinical Center sponsor Rare Disease Day at NIH as part of this global observance. This year’s global theme is “Research” continuing from 2017, and the slogan is “Patients are not only subjects but also proactive actors in research.”
Thursday, March 1
8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. ET
Masur Auditorium, Building 10
National Institutes of Health
Sponsored by NCATS and the NIH Clinical Center (CC), the event will feature presentations, posters, exhibits, an art show and CC tours. Admission is free and open to the public. In association with Global Genes, participants are encouraged to wear their favorite pair of jeans. Be sure to follow the event on social media using #RDDNIH.
