Join us to see the beautiful faces behind rare diseases. Learn from clinicians, researchers, families and patients as you enjoy a fine art exhibit featuring young patients afflicted by rare disease.
This event is the first of a two part program, and is a collaboration between the Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Osler Society, and the Feinstein Institute of Medical Research.
Come see the faces of rare diseases in this unique painted portrait collection curated by the Rare Diseases United Foundation. Learn about Angelman’s Syndrome and Prader-Willi Syndrome, clinically distinct complex disorders, both of which are mapped to chromosome 15q11-q13. Both syndromes have characteristic neurologic, developmental, and behavioral phenotypes plus other structural and functional abnormalities. Join us for a panel discussion including patients living with these disorders, moderated by Martin Bialer, MD, a pediatric geneticist and associate professor at the Zucker School of Medicine.
