Help by signing up and encouraging others!
The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) is coordinating the observance of Rare Disease Day in the United States on February 28, 2009. On that day—and in the weeks leading up to it—we will join with others around the world to conduct a variety of activities to raise awareness of rare diseases and the need for safe, effective treatments.
We invite all patient organizations, companies, medical societies, government agencies, and others with an interest in rare diseases and orphan products to join us in this global effort. You can do this by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and signing up as a Rare Disease Day Partner.
