One thought on “Upcoming events

  1. Great to see your list Susannah, I’ve been in the process of making mine as well. I was hoping to attend Medicine X, but didn’t get a patient scholarship, so I’ll try again next year. For rare disease, I found the World Orphan Drug Congress especially helpful and they are working to integrate the patient voice much more. Also, Rare Disease Day events on the hill was a great place to network and make our voice heard, but less of a conference like setting.
