||Rare diseases affect an estimated 30 million people in the United States. On February 28, 2020, NIH will host an event to raise awareness about these disorders, the people they affect, and current research collaborations. Sponsored by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) and the NIH Clinical Center, the event will feature interactive panel discussions, as well as posters and table exhibits. Participants can share their thoughts, photos, and experiences during the day via social media using the hashtag #RDDNIH.
