Groundbreakers. Leaders. Advocates. The rare disease community is full of people who inspire us all through innovation, research, compassion and a relentless spirit to affect positive change. Through the RARE Champions of Hope Awards, we honor and recognize true champions for rare disease. This year we will be recognizing leaders who have made a significant impact in advocacy, industry, medical care, science, as well as up-and-coming rare disease leaders.  The 2021 Champions of Hope event will be an in-person event in Philadelphia, PA that will also be livestreamed to be able to watch virtually.
