Our September 29 #RheumChat was co-hosted by the Rheumatology Research Foundation (@RheumResearch). The Rheumatology Research Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to advancing treatment for patients living with rheumatic disease.
 The purpose of the chat was to spotlight rare diseases.

Here are a few of the questions that were covered. See the full recap below.

Q1. What are some rare rheumatic diseases?
Q2. What are some challenges that individuals with a rare disease may face?
Q3. How can researchers help individuals with a rare disease?
Q4. How can individuals learn more about clinical trials and research that may improve their care?
Q5. What resources are available for patients living with rare rheumatic diseases (e.g. support groups, educational materials)?
Q6. How can we raise awareness about rare rheumatic diseases?
