This dynamic and interactive program is directed at raising awareness about the prevalence of patients afflicted with a rare disease. There are over 7,000 rare disorders that are known to affect 30 million Americans, more than half of which are children. This program will raise diagnostic awareness of typical patient symptoms and treatments that are actually atypical and continue to manifest overtime. Diagnostic resources, tools and detailed infrastructure of resources for both providers and patients will be demonstrated in this program.
