VIRTUAL EVENT: Rare on the Road – Rare Disease Leadership Tour
June 23 @ 11:00 am - June 24 @ 1:30 pm
Since 2017, Global Genes and the EveryLife Foundation have partnered to host RARE on the Road events around the country, developing the next generation of advocacy leaders. This year, due to the coronavirus crisis, we are hosting RARE on the Road virtually!
With feedback from the community, we designed a unique two-part virtual experience that will empower attendees to build their skill set, enhance their knowledge, engage in advocacy, and network with their local rare disease community.
These events are geared toward rare disease community members who want to tell their rare disease story, make an impact in the lives of others, and connect locally with fellow rare disease community members. Register for Part I, Part II or both!
Part I: Interactive Webinar – Tuesday, June 23rd, 11:00 a.m. ET – 1:30 p.m. ET
Participants will engage in interactive tutorials on how to tell their rare story and how to get involved in advocacy. This event is open to all rare disease community members and will feature special guest speakers, including a rare disease patient and a policy expert.
Meet local rare disease community members with this unique video chat experience. This session offers participants an opportunity to learn from local rare disease leaders, share ideas, and form lasting relationships with their peers.
This session will focus on issues and resources specific to California, Louisiana, Minnesota, and North Carolina, but residency is not required to register (industry members are not allowed).
We are seeking volunteer RARE Chat moderators! Please indicate interest in the registration application.
Due to the generous support of our sponsors, participants of either event will receive a RARE Care Package, including a RARE on the Road t-shirt and other merchandise.
