Since 2008, Rare Disease Day (RDD) has been held annually on the last day of February. Bringing together physicians, patient organizations, researchers, medical companies, and of course, rare disease patients from around the world, RDD is a unique opportunity to raise awareness and bring support to the community.
This year CENTOGENE is hosting a two-part virtual event, with a scientific conference, followed by our first international film festival on rare diseases.
Rare Disease Day – Virtual Conference
Bringing together patients, medical experts, and advocates from around the world, our Rare Disease Day 2021 Digital Conference provides a platform to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on rare disease patients and how we can work together to help.
Rare Disease Filmfestival
Showcasing work from filmmakers around the world, the Rare Disease Filmfestival aims to raise awareness of the unique challenges rare disease patients face.
Throughout the event, you will get a glimpse of the amazing work from our finalists, who have been selected from over 3,000 entries – and a look into the inspiring lives of rare disease patients.
