The 2017 Rare Impact Awards continues NORD’s 31-year tradition of bringing together the entire rare disease community to celebrate those who are making extraordinary contributions to drive progress and help others.
The Rare Impact Awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2017 in Washington in the amphitheater of the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, the largest structure in D.C. and the first and only federal building dedicated to both federal and private use. More than 500 distinguished guests are expected to attend.
The event will serve as a fundraiser to support NORD’s mission of providing education, advocacy, patient support and research to help all people with rare diseases. There are approximately 7,000 known rare diseases, most of which are life-altering and do not yet have a treatment.
