Featured Session: Diagnosis & Management of Rare Disease

We are at a major inflection point in our ability to use clinical genomic information to diagnosis and manage thousands of rare diseases, yet the ability to ensure patient access to this information and innovative science remains unrealized due to an array of complex barriers. With 30 million patients in the U.S. and 300 million around the globe living with the burden of a rare disease, this unmet medical need is substantial. The panel includes a variety of stakeholders involved in finding innovative solutions to remove these barriers for patients and their healthcare providers in today’s fragmented medical care system.
