One response to “William Gahl, MD, PhD, to keynote at Rare Disease Day, Feb. 29

  1. Thank you for supporting Rare Disease Day! My son Gage passed away from a rare genetic disease called early-onset LAL deficiency (also known as Wolman disease) in 2009. Rare Disease Day means so much to the millions of people and families affected by the approximately 7,000 rare diseases. Thanks again! Mary http://www.lalsolace.org
