Michigan State University College of Human Medicine is collaborating with Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital and Calvin University to host the Rare Disease Day Symposium on February 29, 2020.

We have generous support for this event from the College of Human Medicine, the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, and the Department of Pediatrics and Human Development.

One in 10 people in the United States has a rare disease. Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend this free event that brings together patients, caregivers, researchers and advocates in the rare disease community. Sessions include talks from a scientist studying rare diseases, a medical geneticist and patients with various rare disease diagnoses, and other scientific breakouts.
