Simulations Plus (Nasdaq: SLP) 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,” said Shawn O’Connor, CEO of Simulations Plus. “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.”
“NORD is very grateful to Simulations Plus for the generous donation to support our mission of improving the lives of individuals and families in the United States living with a rare disease,” said Lisa Sarfaty, Vice President of Community Engagement, NORD. “Each year, NORD directly helps over 10,000 individuals access critical treatment, medication, and care services while fielding nearly 140,000 requests for information and support through our call center. 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.”
