RARE on the Road – Educating the next generation of advocacy leaders

Be part of the Rare on the Road virtual event coming up next month.

Since 2017, Global Genes and the EveryLife Foundation have partnered to host RARE on the Road events around the country, developing the next generation of advocacy leaders. This year, due to the coronavirus crisis, we are hosting RARE on the Road virtually.

With feedback from the community, we designed a unique two-part virtual experience that will empower attendees to build their skill set, enhance their knowledge, engage in advocacy, and network with their local rare disease community.

These events are geared toward rare disease community members who want to tell their rare disease story, make an impact in the lives of others, and connect locally with fellow rare disease community members. Register for Part I, Part II or both!

Part I is an Interactive Webinar on June 23rd featuring special guest speakers, including a rare disease patient and a policy expert.

Part II is a series of RARE Chats that will focus on issues and resources specific to California, Louisiana, Minnesota, and North Carolina.

To register, go here: https://raretour.org/. The deadline to register is June 15th. To receive a RARE Care Package, participants must register by June 1st.

We hope to see you online June 23rd and 24th!

General information

The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) was established by Proposition 71, the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative. The statewide ballot measure, which provided $3 billion in funding for stem cell research at California universities and research institutions, was approved by 59% of California voters on November 2, 2004, and called for the establishment of a new state agency to make grants and provide loans for stem cell research, research facilities and other vital research opportunities. The Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (ICOC) is the 29-member Governing Board of the Institute; the Governing Board members represent expertise from California’s leading public and private universities, non-profit hospitals and research institutions, patient advocacy groups and biotechnology.
