NORD Webinar
Rare Cancers: Breaking Down Barriers to Diagnosis, Treatment and Research
September 30, 2021 at 2:00PM U.S. ET

you are not alone
Join The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) for a free 45-minute webinar where they will explore rare cancer challenges and offer insights to assist those who are impacted.
Many rare cancers are difficult to diagnose and treatment options are limited. Patients living with, or at risk of, a rare cancer often encounter obstacles accessing appropriate screening, referrals, counseling, effective therapies, and research opportunities. At the same time, clinicians and rare cancer researchers are challenged by complex health conditions, limited access to diagnostic tools, sparse clinical study data and small research populations. NORD is there to help patients and clinicians alike address these gaps and break down barriers.
