The Rare Sibling Experience
Thu, Mar 25, 2021 2:00 PM EDT
The impact of a rare disease extends beyond the patient and is interwoven into the entire family dynamic. Siblings of rare disease patients often face personal challenges inside and outside of the home. Guidance and nurturing can empower unaffected sibs to be supportive members of the family, while maintaining their unique identities. Please join NORD to hear child life specialist, Kate McGowen, and psychologist, Dr. David Rintell, share commonly observed barriers and best practices for fostering healthy sibling relationships. Hannah Raskin-Gross will share how her experience growing up with a brother who has a rare disease has shaped her commitment to advocacy. This webinar, moderated by NORD guest and child life specialist, Eden Van Alstine, is perfect for patients, advocates, caregivers, students, and the public.
