With 1 out of 10 people affected by rare disease, still, medical professionals often do not recognize or encounter one of the 7,000 that exist today.
In an effort to build the bridge of understanding and compassion among medical professionals, Global Genes presents the third year of the David R. Cox Scholarship for Rare Compassion. This scholarship program is an opportunity for emerging medical students to connect to the rare disease community with the goal of developing and understanding compassion for the challenges and lifestyles that patients diagnosed with a rare disease are faced with everyday.
All medical students are eligible to be matched with a rare disease patient and/or family, and those who meet the requirements may have the opportunity to submit an essay or audio submission about their experience for consideration to receive a scholarship.
First and second year medical students are invited to submit an essay for
this prize. In preparation, students are required to build a relationship with a
patient, family, or advocate affected by a rare or neglected disease in order
to write about the experience, or to write about an experience with a patient
with a rare or neglected disease that has occurred within the last 12 months.
