To raise awareness, Rare Disease Day is recognized on the last day of February annually. In this episode, industry leaders Joan Chambers, senior director of marketing and outreach at CISCRP, and Scott Schliebner, executive VP and chief strategy officer at M&B Sciences, discuss the importance of improving access to treatment and medical representation for individuals with rare diseases and their families.
