In her new memoir, Orphan Drugs: A Global Crusade, NORD founder Abbey Meyers shares her lifetime experience as a parent and tireless advocate for people affected by rare diseases.  In the book, she documents the issues that led to enactment of the “Orphan Drug Act of 1983” (ODA), and the extraordinary scientific and industrial progress that ensued, including the development of Orphan Drug legislation in other industrialized countries around the world.  Abbey is considered the primary American consumer advocate responsible for passage of the ODA and her book walks readers through her fight to invoke change in this underserved space.
