Nominations are now open for the 2018 NORD Rare Impact Awards. These awards honor individuals who have made a positive impact on the rare disease community through research, patient care, advocacy, or other areas of involvement.
Awards are presented in May each year at NORD’s annual Rare Impact Celebration. Nominations may be submitted online. The deadline is January 12.
Honorees from previous years have included members of Congress, staff and senior officials from NIH and FDA, medical researchers and clinicians, patient organization leaders, and individual patients and caregivers. The awards honor those who have helped to improve the lives of those affected by rare diseases.
