While all sessions are available to all attendee’s, breakout workshops are structured with a particular audience in mind while plenary sessions are for a broader audience. Opportunities to present are available for the following:

Plenary and Wellness: These sessions are designed to inspire and empower with real stories of patient and doctor collaboration, true stories of overcoming hardships and opportunities to relax and unwind.

Breakout Workshops:

  • Living Rare: Education for Beginners and Newly Diagnosed

  • Living Stronger: Education for Advanced Patients and Caregivers
    For patients and caregivers who are more advanced in their understanding of their rare disease. Workshops focus on advocacy, access, PTSD and tips to continue to live your best life
  • Loving Rare: Education and Coping strategies for the Caregiver
    For those who care for their loved ones. Workshops focus on relationships, stress management and self-care solutions and transitioning care for patients at all ages

Discussion Groups: In 2020 we offered 9 different topics for our audience to engage with like minded peers. Topics included Newly Diagnosed, Teens and Preteens, Young Adults, Parent and Non-Parent caregiving and Dating Divorce and Intimate Partner Relationships. Topic leaders will lead discussions and provide a safe open forum for all attendees to share their thoughts.
