Following a period of substantial growth, the Rare Disease Foundation (RDF) has announced that David Cox will no longer be the Executive Director of the registered charitable organization. The announcement comes as RDF builds on success with increased awareness of their Peer2Peer and research granting programs, as well as their partnership with Outrun Rare.
Mr. Cox helped RDF grow to its current size and the entire RDF community is forever grateful for the service David has given to the rare disease community.Interim leadership will be named shortly to ensure that all programs, including our upcoming Rare Finds events in Edmonton and Montreal, as well as our work with Outrun Rare, the Peer2Peer groups, and the rare disease research community, remain top priorities for the organization.
“David has been instrumental in helping RDF grow from a small organization into the well-organized national charity that it has become,” stated RDF Board Chair Isabel Jordan. “We wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
