On Saturday, June 22, 2019, NORD will be hosting its annual Rare Impact Awards in Houston, TX, bringing the entire rare disease community together to celebrate those who are making extraordinary contributions to the lives of rare disease patients and caregivers.
This year we will be honoring individuals and organizations that have truly gone above and beyond to propel progress and bolster rare disease patients and communities. Our previous honorees not only live with or care for someone with a rare disease, but their work supports the larger community in deeply profound and poignant ways.
Now we’d like your help in identifying these very special individuals and organizations. They are your family, friends, colleagues, mentors, medical team members, or even advocates that you have come to learn about through social media, in the news or at events. They are stepping up and making strides to change the status quo for rare diseases. The concrete examples you provide of their work and achievements will set this year’s nominees apart.
Please review our Tips and FAQs and then complete the nomination form below to submit by Friday, January 11, 2019. For complete rules and guidelines, please review these Legal Disclosures.
