Rare Disease Day

February 28, 2021 All day

This February 28 is Rare Disease Day. With so many things going on in the world around us, it’s very easy to put off important things like health. That’s why the last day of February each year we mark our calendars to bring awareness to rare diseases. An average of 1 in 20 people live with a rare disease at least once in their lifetime, few of which see any sign of a cure. The goal of Rare Disease Day is to improve knowledge amongst the general public of rare diseases while encouraging researchers and decision makers to address the needs of those living with rare diseases.
