As Born a Hero works with other stakeholders to establish a rare disease council in WA state, we invite you to learn from world famous gene therapy experts, scientists and leaders in the rare disease space and to hear their ideas for the future of the WA RDAC. We encourage your input moving forward.

At the Rare Disease Policy Roundtable we will invite legislators and national policy rare disease influencers so that we can learn about what policies are important to the rare disease community. Here you can also provide input and learn about actions you can take.

We will also have speakers in the orthopedic rare disease world that you won’t want to miss. This year our scientific talks will pertain to Orthopedic Rare Diseases such as; Pfeiffer Syndrome, Klippel-Fiel Syndrome, Fibrodysplasia Ossificas Progressiva, Brittle Bone Disease, and Osteogenesis Imperfecta
