What does Rare Disease Day mean to you? Building awareness of rare diseases is so important because 1 in 20 people will live with a rare disease at some point in their life.

Rare Disease Day improves knowledge amongst the general public of rare diseases while encouraging researchers and decision makers to address the needs of those living with rare diseases.
We are so excited to roll out our very first e-newsletter for the Alagille Syndrome Alliance. This e-newsletter has been a goal of the ALGSA for a long time and one we hoped we'd see come to fruition sooner than later!
