Check out the Tennessee Rare Disease Day Virtual Event Recording

Tennessee RareAction Network hosted a Rare Disease Day Virtual Event on February 26, 2021. We were joined by patients, families, caregivers and other rare disease community members at this important virtual event that educated Tennessee legislators and the general public on the challenges faced by rare disease patients and their families.

Vanderbilt Undiagnosed Disease Network

The Undiagnosed Diseases Network (UDN) is a research study funded by the National Institutes of Health Common Fund, made up of medical and research centers across the United States working to improve diagnosis and care of patients with undiagnosed diseases. Through this study, we hope to both help individual patients and families and contribute to the understanding of how the human body works.

Due to the complex nature of the body and the diseases being investigated, we cannot accept all applicants into the study. However, we do fully review all applications we receive. For more information about the UDN and the application process, please visit: https://ww2.mc.vanderbilt.edu/undiagnosed/

In order to make meaningful change in the lives of rare disease patients and their families in the state of Tennessee, we need you! Become active with the RareAction Network by joining and utilizing the resources available on this website to take action and create change.
