World Rare Disease Day is an annual observance held on the last day of February to raise awareness for rare diseases and improve access to treatments and medical representation for individuals with rare diseases and their families.

The 9th annual World Rare Disease Day will be held on Monday, February 29, 2016 (the rarest day of the year)! On this day, various activities take place in the United States, Europe, Russia, Japan and elsewhere around the world.

Are you an organization holding a community or an interoffice celebration or event? What about a patient holding a support group or meet up? Big or small–from the east coast to the west–send us the info!
