Patients are the #1 reason I’m passionate about my job. Listening to and being given the honor to share their stories of perseverance, strength and courage provides me daily inspiration, and collaborating with my clients who are fiercely focused on improving lives is both intellectually stimulating and emotionally satisfying. That’s why I think today is such an important day.

Today, February 28, is Rare Disease Day! The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) and its supporters have again organized a Goliath-style day of awareness for the millions of patients and their families who alone are facing rare and often unknown diseases, but who together are strong. 

In support of NORD’s mission to help elevate rare diseases into the public spotlight as a global public health concern, I encourage you to share this blog and all of the great content NORD has created.
