NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders) Partnership

MedicAlert Foundation is proud to partner with NORD to provide support, educational resources and tools to help those affected by rare disease live more safely and confidently.

MedicAlert is proud to support the mission of NORD to expand resources for people living with rare diseases.

NORD is the leading patient advocacy organization dedicated to those living with rare diseases – an estimated 25-30 million people in the U.S. People with rare diseases face multiple challenges: finding information on their condition, accessing specialized care, and lack of available treatments. Along with its 300+ patient organization members, NORD is committed to improving lives of people with rare diseases. NORD does this through the identification, treatment, and cure of rare disorders through programs of education, advocacy, research, and patient services.

Another challenge for those with rare diseases is getting proper care in an emergency. If you have an accident or medical incident, first responders or other medical personnel may be unfamiliar with your condition. A MedicAlert ID provides you with a way to communicate your condition in an emergency. And with a MedicAlert membership, you keep a detailed medical profile that we transmit to first responders. This creates better outcomes, because emergency personnel have the information they need to give you faster, more accurate care.

In the event of an accident or medical emergency, a MedicAlert ID and membership helps protect people with rare disorders. If you can’t speak for yourself, MedicAlert will be your voice.
