Beyond the Diagnosis Art Exhibit
The Beyond the Diagnosis Art Exhibit’s focus is the rare disease patient. Artists have donated their time and talents to paint rare disease patients for this groundbreaking Exhibit. This beautiful Exhibit is traveling to medical schools, research institutes and hospitals around the globe encouraging the medical community to look “beyond the diagnosis” to the patient. With an average diagnosis time of 8 years and few treatment options, doctors and rare disease patients need to have a more engaged approach to reduce diagnosis time and improve care.
Art has been used for thousands of years to successfully convey a message, whether it be a story or a glimpse into the human spirit. At Rare Disease United Foundation, we believe art not only leaves a powerful and lasting visual imprint, but creates a unique connection for the viewer.
