NORD CME programming provides a dynamic and interactive program designed to increase diagnostic awareness of rare diseases where seemingly typical patient symptoms and treatments are actually atypical and continue to manifest over time.  There are over 7,000 rare disorders that are known to affect 30 million Americans, more than half of which are children. Diagnostic resources, tools and detailed infrastructure of resources for both providers and patients are demonstrated during programming.
