Patient Resources

Many genetic disorders are exceedingly rare. The Division of Genetics organizes events and sponsors support groups to help patients with the rarest metabolic disorders.

  • An annual picnic is held for metabolic disorders patients featuring a recipe exchange and dishes appropriate to the metabolic patient's diet.
  • We also sponsor a support group for families of patients with inborn errors of metabolism, formed in 1996. For information about this group, click here.
  • More information on rare disorders may be found at the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) site:
