Event description

Description

If a disease is rare, should we invest in research to find a treatment? This is a problem facing over 3,000,000 people in England (24 million in Europe) because there are thousands of rare diseases. Although each rare disease affects less than one in 2,000 people, those who are affected suffer on a daily basis due to a lack of knowledge about their rare diseases and often only receive treatment for their symptoms with little hope of recovering from the disease.

Royal Holloway will be running it's annual Rare Disease Day event on 26th February (alongside the international Rare Disease Day) raising awareness of rare diseases and the millions of families who are affected by them. The event will include a range of talks, activities and exhibitions.
