Nemours Pediatric Rare and Chronic Disease Student Research Event<BR><BR>
As part of our community engagement efforts, Rare Disease Day 2015 will be observed with an educational event co-sponsored by Nemours Biomedical Research, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, and Delaware HOSA-Future Health Professionals. The goal of this competitive event is to encourage student engagement and to support policies and practices that facilitate research, encourage innovation, and advance awareness and understanding of rare diseases. Student teams from eight Delaware schools prepared a visual display about a specific rare disease and their research efforts, and will present a proposed cure/treatment or way to improve the quality of life related to the condition. Students also participated in fundraising efforts designated for rare disease research at Nemours.<BR><BR>
