Meet Rare Disease Advocates from your state and region, get to know our YARR members, and win prizes!
Each session is arranged based on where you live and hosted by RDLA in partnership with the Young Adult Representatives of RDLA (YARR) and State Organization Leaders.
This is a fun opportunity for the rare disease community in each region and state to get together before Rare Disease Week to foster community and camaraderie. Whether you are new or a veteran of the rare disease community, there will be something for everyone. We want to take time to get together socially before the excitement of Rare Disease Week! See below for details on the virtual session in YOUR region.
