2018 David R. Cox Scholarship for Rare Compassion Recipients

Global Genes celebrates these recipients and all of the medical students who participated in the Cox Scholarship this year. We also want to thank the patients and families connected with Foundation Alliance members who opened up their homes and lives to help future physicians learn more and develop compassion for the daily challenges facing the rare community.
