Welcome to the second annual RARE in the Square, to be hosted January 8-10, 2018. Set in San Francisco’s Union Square, and coinciding with J.P. Morgan’s annual Healthcare Conference, RARE in the Square is a unique networking event that assembles RARE investors, investors, industry partners, patient community leaders and RARE disease influencers. It offers a forum for RARE disease stakeholders to gather in a distinctive and convenient location to connect, network, and unwind, all at the epicenter of the J.P. Morgan conference event.
