February 28 – Rare Disease Day!

Rare Disease Day is an international advocacy day to bring widespread recognition of rare diseases as a global health challenge. The day is celebrated on the last day of February every year and this year is observed February 28, 2013.

The purpose of World Rare Disease Day is to harness the creative energy of the millions of people around the world with rare diseases — as well as that of all the people who care about and assist them — to help others understand certain fundamental issues that need to be addressed.

This year’s theme is “Rare Disorders Without Borders” For more information please visit the US Rare Disease Day website and Global Rare Disease Day website!
