In celebration of Rare Disease Day®, NORD will co-host a tweetchat on the topic of rare diseases with Dr. Richard Besser, Chief of the ABC News Medical/Health Unit. The tweetchat will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. EST.
This is the fourth annual tweetchat that ABC News and NORD, the U.S. host of Rare Disease Day, are co-hosting together. We are pleased to present this year’s chat in collaboration with Medscape, the leading online destination for physicians and healthcare professionals worldwide.
Join us! The tweetchat is an opportunity for patients, experts, doctors, the rare disease community and public to come together on Rare Disease Day, ask questions, get answers, and raise important awareness.
NORD will be live-tweeting from @RareDiseases and @RareDayUS (a Twitter feed dedicated to Rare Disease Day) with Marsha Lanes, MS, CGC, NORD’s Genetic Counselor & Medical Editor, answering your questions. Dr. Besser will join and moderate the chat from @abcdrbchat. Medscape will join from @Medscape.
We look forward to having you participate as we work together to bring widespread recognition to rare diseases and the 30 million Americans who battle them.
