Today on NORDpod, we welcome back Lesli Nordstrom, Director of Marketing and communications at NORD. As returning champion to the show, she’s back to get real about the rare disease community with reflection on the past 18 months. The pandemic’s impact cannot be understated. Millions of lives have been uprooted as we mourn the deaths of hundreds of thousands. But our shared pain and suffering are what make us stronger together. Lesli and Matthew also discuss the unique challenges facing the nonprofit sector and the medical profession in the wake of life being turned upside down. They acknowledge NORD’s role in confronting the crisis head-on by implementing new support programs, financial aid systems, and incubation grants to startup charities in the space.
