Simulations Plus is celebrating 25 years in business and continuing the commitment to improve public health through innovative solutions with a $25,000 donation to the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), headquartered in Quincy, MA.
A second team of long-tenured employees researched various organizations and selected a recipient aligned with the Company's vision and mission. The group chose the National Organization for Rare Disorders, and the $25,000 donation was made on February 28, 2022, which was the internationally celebrated Rare Disease Day for 2022 (#RareDiseaseDay).
We are pleased to provide this donation to NORD as part of our 25th anniversary charitable donation program to acknowledge and support the good and important work they are performing in the area of rare diseases and the challenges of meeting patients’ needs. NORD has been highly successful in shining a light on the all-too-often underserved areas of rare disease therapeutic development and the patients who suffer from these afflictions.”

Partnerships and contributions from organizations like Simulations Plus are critical for NORD to carry out our important work and serve the greater rare disease community.”

About the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD)
The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) is the leading independent advocacy organization representing all patients and families affected by rare diseases in the United States. NORD began as a small group of patient advocates that formed a coalition to unify and mobilize support to pass the Orphan Drug Act of 1983. Since then, the organization has led the way in voicing the needs of the rare disease community, driving supportive policies, furthering education, advancing medical research, and providing patient and family services for those who need them most. Together with over 300 disease-specific member organizations, more than 17,000 Rare Action Network advocates across all 50 states, and national and global partners, NORD delivers on its mission to improve the lives of those impacted by rare diseases.
