On the rarest day of the calendar, Ontario is taking action on a rare disease.
Health Minister Eric Hoskins on Monday announced a new clinic for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
“This is the aptly timed Rare Disease Day. It happens once every four years . . . rare as the diseases are,” Hoskins said of it being Feb. 29.
“People living with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and other rare diseases face enough challenges on a daily basis that finding the right care and support in Ontario shouldn’t be one of them,” the minister said.
