Rare Disease Awareness Club Header
Iowa State's Rare Disease Awareness Club (RDAC) works to spread awareness about rare conditions and the issues faced by the 1 in 10 Americans affected by them. What is a rare disease? In the United States a rare disease is defined as any disease, disorder, illness, or condition affecting fewer than 200,000 people in the country at any given time.


Rare Disease Day at Iowa State University will be held on February 25th at 6 pm and is a completely free and virtual event open to everyone. Our event will feature keynote speaker, Taylor Kane, who is the founder and executive director of Remember the Girls. This will be followed by individual rare disease poster presentations given by community members and ISU students. Rare Disease Day at ISU is one of thousands of Rare Disease Day events being held across the world. We hope you can join us! Here is the Zoom invite:
