Rare diseases affect an estimated 30 million people in the United States. On March 1, 2021, NIH will host its annual Rare Disease Day event to raise awareness about these disorders, the people they affect, and current NIH research collaborations underway. Sponsored by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) and the NIH Clinical Center, the event will feature interactive panel discussions, the sharing of rare stories, and more. Participants can share their thoughts, photos, and experiences via social media using the hashtag #RDDNIH.
