Collaborations in Advocacy (New for 2013!)
In order to advance efforts related to advocacy, we are finding collaborations are critical and necessary. We are looking to honor those organizations and individuals who see the importance and value in collaborating around a rare disease or group of diseases. Submissions must include names of all parties included in the collaboration.
