Since 2015 Delaware HOSA has partnered with Nemours for an annual Rare and Chronic Disease Research Event in conjunction with Rare Disease Day. National Rare Disease Day is always the last day of February each year. The main objective of Rare Disease Day is to raise awareness among the general public and decision-makers about rare diseases and their impact on patients' lives. The event engages and involves HOSA members in science, research & STEM-related careers through education, mentorship, and hands-on experience, to help guide the future health professionals.
