Rare Patient Advocacy Summit!

SEPTEMBER 28, 2012
9am to 3pm
Balboa Bay Club, Newport Beach CA
Join us September 28th as Global Genes | RARE Project will host the first annual Patient Advocacy Summit, where patient community participants can hear directly from and engage in dialogue on various topics to educate and inform.  A major challenge facing the RARE Disease community is the lack of significant, open and regular communication on common issues of broad interest.  While each rare disease is unique from a scientific standpoint there are common social issues which span the entire community. 
The event will be highly interactive. Panels and discussion will be prioritized over formal lectures and presentations. The outcome is not pre-set, it will be a collective effort based on the interactions of the participants. This annual summit is open to all in the rare disease community that wish to participate and is FREE.

  1. ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS FOR THE GREAT DEED HE HAVE DON FOR MY FAMILY.This information will be useful for Epilepsy patients who is willing to use herbal medicine. My daughter had temporal lobe epilepsy, She had seizure and had a grand mal with rage episode. Our daughter's seizure is constant throughout the day. We had used several medicine which include: Epilim and Keppra, experience seizure control at the cost of serious debilitating side effects.
