International Gaucher Day. Follow the campaign
International Gaucher Day (IGD) was launched by the EGA in 2014 and is celebrated annually on 1st October to raise awareness of Gaucher disease.
We believe that the patient community will benefit greatly from learning about what inspires and motivates people to work in the field of Gaucher and so the theme of the #IGD2018 #rarestars campaign will focus upon doctors, nurses, scientists, patient advocates and those involved in the pharmaceutical industry, who all work hard to improve the quality of life for the entire Gaucher patient community.
During the run up to IGD, we will be sharing short videos from some inspirational figures working within the Gaucher field and from the pharmaceutical industry; showing their motivation, experiences and hopes for the Gaucher community.
