Rare Disease Day 2018

, , , ,

Hi Everybody

As newly joined members, we received an email Newsletter on the above from Eurordis. The relevant points and links are copied herewith! Apologies that it's a bit late in the day but we only received the email on 22nd. You may, however, have seen a lot of reference to this on social media. Facebook CdLS contacts around the world are certainly joining in and I believe Brazil held a specific event around Rare Disease Day. Not sure about the hashtag #ShowYourRare - grammatically! emoticon_smile

From the Newsletter:

Less than one week until Rare Disease Day 2018!
