The RareVoice Awards is an annual celebration to honor advocates who give rare disease patients a voice on Capitol Hill and in state government. Patient advocates, industry executives, and Congressional and government agency staff gather to honor these outstanding advocates in the rare disease community.

Award recipients are chosen by committee from nominations received from the rare disease community. Awardees receive an “Abbey” statuette commissioned specially for the RareVoice Awards, and named for Abbey Meyers, founder of the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD).
