The unusual suspects: rare diseases in everyday medicine is organized by Medics4RareDiseases (M4RD), The Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) and will be held on Feb 19, 2020 at The Royal Society of Medicine, London, England, United Kingdom.
Medics 4 Rare Diseases and the RSM will bring a faculty of top speakers to explore how rare diseases are relevant in everyday clinical medicine.
This event is aimed at clinicians at all stages of their training to explain why rare diseases are important to everyday medicine. We will explore how generalists can approach patients with rare diseases and become advocates for them. We will hear from a patient who suffered a long and arduous journey to diagnosis as a child and now uses her illustrations to tell her story. We will also learn about drug repurposing.
