Our Approach

At My City Med, we dream up ways to make medical and non-medical resources more readily available for patients and caregivers. A virtual health fair for rare patients seemed like a no-brainer to us!

Our Story

My City Med was born of necessity. After Eden Lord's 4 month old daughter was diagnosed with several rare diseases, she scoured the internet searching for the best specialists and treatments for her daughter.

From that intensive search, My City Med was born to create an online resource that gives patients and caregivers the tools and road maps they need to manage a diagnosis. Now our team is honored to present the first of it's kind virtual health fair to bring those resources to the rare disease population in an accessible way.
