Rare Disease Day 2018 at the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre

27 February 2018


The last day of the February is Rare Disease Day

This is the day of the year above all others that as a community we try to raise awareness amongst the general public, policy makers, public authorities, industry representatives, researchers, health professionals and anyone who has a genuine interest in rare diseases.

Here in Newcastle, staff at the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre tried to do just that by participating in a ‘Genetics Matters’ afternoon just before the day itself. Attendees benefitted from a series of talks followed by round table lightning talks. Here are a few photos from the day.
