Each year, Global Genes convenes one of the world’s largest gatherings of rare disease patients, caregivers, advocates, healthcare professionals, researchers, partners, and allies at the RARE Patient Advocacy Summit.
This year we’re celebrating being back together again, and have opportunities for you to join us in person or online for two days of connection opportunities, educational sessions, fun, and the RARE Champions of Hope Awards Ceremony and Dinner!
Summit sessions provide attendees with insights about the latest in rare disease innovations, best practices for advocating on an individual and organizational level, and actionable strategies to take home. This year, the Summit will be a hybrid event so all can attend – in person at the Town & Country Hotel in San Diego, California and live streamed online in our virtual event platform.
