Past/Upcoming Presentations Include

Global Genes Summit

The Global Genes RARE Patient Advocacy Summit is the largest gathering of its kind which will bring together rare disease patients, advocates and leaders worldwide to this two day event in Irvine, California.

I am looking forward to being one of the presenters at this event where I will be speaking on Understanding the Emotional Health of RARE Disease Families.

In this discussion, I will be exploring the challenges loved ones and family members encounter when a family member has a rare disease. I will be sharing my thoughts on this as a mental health therapist who also lives with an invisible illness.
