We are participating at this special day for schools, which aims to draw attention to rare diseases and the millions of people who are affected by them.

Although genetic haemochromatosis is not rare, it is rarely diagnosed.

At this schools event, in conjunction with Royal Holloway College, University of London, we hope to inspire students in school years 10, 11 and 12 particularly to consider studying for a career in medicine, biological sciences and genetics.

Booking for this event has now closed.
