RARE Patient Advocacy Summit

 

I’m on my way to California today.  I was nominated for an award in the 2015 Tribute to Champions of Hope so I’ll be flying to Huntington Beach  for the 2-day  Fourth Annual RARE Patient Advocacy Summit. Follow along with LiveStream.

Saturday night will be the Gala.

One of the very best parts of this trip, though, is that I’m staying with a good friend from the Cushing’s Community.

WOOHOO
