NORD marks 10 years as official U.S. Rare Disease Day sponsor

Since the Rare Disease Day campaign was first launched internationally by EURORDIS and its Council of National Alliances in 2008, thousands of events have taken place across the world, reaching hundreds of thousands of people and resulting in extensive media coverage and growing public awareness. This year, NORD is proud to celebrate its tenth anniversary as the official sponsor of Rare Disease Day in the United States.

Each year, Eurordis releases a video as part of their Rare Disease Day tool kit. Make a mark for both the #ShowYourRare and #ShowYourStripes challenges with striped face paint!
