Tip of the Week: Commonalities in the 7,000 rare diseases

One week from Saturday is Rare Disease Day. Although each of the more than 7,000 rare diseases is unique, the rare disease community is united by the many commonalities. To raise awareness around rare disease issues, individuals, families, and organizations like PWSA (USA) are part of an annual international movement in support of everyone who is #GrowingUpRare.

Patrice Carroll is Latham Centers’ world-renowned Prader-Willi syndrome specialist. She works with Latham’s residents with PWS, their families, and consultants, continuously learning and teaching about PWS best practices. Do you have questions for our PWS specialist?
