A Collaboration in Online Rare Disease Education

Nearly one in ten Americans are living with a rare disease. Obtaining a proper diagnosis can be a long journey for many patients. We’re proud to partner with the National Organization of Rare Disorders to produce meaningful online education for providers, patients, and their families. These programs support timely diagnosis and treatment, and empower patients and their families. Knowledge is power when it comes to healthcare — leading to better outcomes for all.

Patients cannot wait for clinicians to learn about their conditions.

  • Clinicians need education about rare diseases to help them identify, diagnose, treat & prescribe for these conditions
  • All HCPs need education – not just doctors
  • HCPs need to hear from patients and their families first-hand about their challenges and experiences

Associate Director, Education Programs

“Accessible, online rare disease education aims to shorten the time to diagnosis and improve quality of care. Alongside NORD’s network of 330 disease-specific member organizations we will continue to deliver actionable rare disease education to HCP’s and patients to improve patient outcomes and the lives of rare families. ”

“No doctor wants to feel unprepared, and for the families who are facing a rare disease, the status quo isn’t enough. With NORD’s understanding of and connections to the rare disease world, and our technology and experience in continuing medical education, we hope to empower clinicians so they can guide patients to the best possible results.”
