Victor Center would like to remind everyone that February 28 is Rare Disease Day 2018. This year, events observing Rare Disease Day are happening in over 80 countries and regions. This year’s theme is research. Families and patients have an important role in research. We would like to extend our thanks to both the families and researchers that have important roles in the development of new treatments and cures.
Our Medical Director, Dr. Saima Aftab, was recently published in South Florida Parenting magazine. In her article, Dr. Aftab gives an educational overview and issues to consider around preconception screening. The leadership of Victor Center has identified knowledge and awareness as a key initiative.
