Rare Disease Day

As the official sponsor for Rare Disease Day in the U.S., NORD hosts the Rare Disease Day US website, organizes medical campaigns, and facilitates awareness events at schools, hospitals and community centers. We also organize “State House Events” to educate state elected officials. Rare Disease Day, always on the last day of February, offers many opportunities for sponsorship and to demonstrate support to patients and families.


The next Rare Disease Day is February 29, 2016. Save the date! 

Visit the official US Rare Disease Day website to get involved.
