Rare Disease Day 2017: A Rare Game for the CRPS/RSD Community

Published on February 28, 2017 under Events

Rare Disease Day 2017 is being celebrated by RSDSA with a CRPS/RSD scavenger hunt

Today is February 28. It is Rare Disease Day!  This is a wonderful day for educating people about rare diseases and conditions, including Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (CRPS/RSD). This blog is a little different than what we typically do. We want to help educate people about CRPS/RSD, while helping people find different resources on our website! What could be better than to organize a scavenger hunt?! You will have until Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. EDT to complete this scavenger hunt and email your responses to SBarrett@rsds.insctest1.com. People with 100% correct responses will be entered to win an RSDSA travel mug. The winner will be chosen via a random selection tool online and will be announced on Monday, March 6. We encourage you to share this blog with your network to help spread the word! Get your friends familiarized with our website. Awareness is key! You never know what knowledge you may stumble upon.
