Preparing the next generation of patient advocates

The goal of this program is to provide trainees with the scientific proficiency needed to be effective advocates for patients with rare diseases.

The Minor in Science and Patient Advocacy prioritizes understanding disease at the molecular, genetic, and clinical levels. Students study the natural history of disease and use that information to support researchers, clinicians, and patients. 

Notre Dame continues to honor its commitment to Patient Advocacy

The second annual Rare Patient Advocacy Summit was held on September 16, 2022 in the Jordan Hall of Science.
