This week, Mark met with Dr. Jayne Spink, CEO of the Genetic Alliance, and Chair of Rare Disease UK at a reception to mark Rare Disease Day held in the Scottish Parliament.
Rare Disease UK is the national campaign for people with rare diseases and all who support them, and Rare Disease Day is an annual event to raise awareness about rare diseases and their impact on patients’ lives.
Did you know that 3.5 million people in the UK will be affected by a rare disease at some point in their lives?
