MUMPS National Paediatric Conference 2018
MUMPS - Manchester University Medics Paediatrics Society is shining a spotlight on paediatric rare diseases.
It is estimated that 75% of rare diseases affect children and sadly 30% of those will die before their fifth birthday. With new research and treatments the outlook for rare diseases doesn't have to be as bleak as it once was. However lots of children wait years for an accurate diagnosis which might come too late in their illness.
Come and learn about rare diseases so that you can help change this. With renowned researchers, doctors, expert patients and more to provide insight into this exciting and growing field. There will also be opportunities for students to present their own research through poster and oral presentations!
