Event description

Description

"I can't seem to find any useful information for my condition on the internet."

"All this medical research is really complicated; I can't make heads or tails of it."

Sound familiar?

As a rare disease warrior, you're your own best advocate. You know what it's like to live day to day with your condition. You share your experience with clinicians unfamiliar with your condition regularly; you're an integral part of the care plan.

You are cordially invited to the "Science for Rare Warriors: Rare Disease Knowledge Translation Conference". If you're looking to learn the basics of medical science, and how to break down complex medical information, this is the conference for you!

Founded in 2015, Rare Disease Review is a national leader in rare disease knowledge translation. We equip and empower patients by translating current rare disease research into detailed reports anyone can understand.

Please join us on October 26, 2018, at the University of Toronto to learn more about how we can help you navigate the complex world of medical science. Tickets are available until October 12 on a first-come, first-serve basis, so register today!

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
