SILVER SPRING, Md. and Danbury, Conn., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) announced that Discovery Health and its new program, DISEASE DETECTIVES, will serve as media and program partners for Rare Disease Day on February 28, 2010.  This year represents the second U.S. observance of Rare Disease Day, an event designed to call attention to the public health issues associated with rare diseases affecting nearly 30 million Americans and countless others worldwide.  In the United States, "rare" refers to diseases plaguing fewer than 200,000 Americans - and according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) there are nearly 7,000 such diseases.  NORD and its 150 member organizations serve as advocates for these patients by heightening awareness of their conditions and the need for increased research funding for effective treatments.  Although progress has been made in recent years, approximately 15 million Americans have rare diseases for which there still is no approved treatment.
