A registry to investigate how COVID-19 affects people with rare diseases
On September 18th Share4Rare organizes a webinar along with the Garrahan Hospital from Buenos Aires (Argentina) to present the new international patient registry that will be created in the platform. The initiative "The burden of COVID-19 in people affected by rare diseases" aims to improve our knowledge on how COVID-19 affects patients with rare or undiagnosed diseases of any age. This unique global strategy will help collect information directly from patients and clinicians, and create a registry that will give new insights on the new SARS-COV-2 infection and on how it affects patients with this kind of pathologies.
The webinar is addressed to patients, associations, clinicians and researchers. Several clinical cases will be presented and questions from attendees will be addressed during the session.
