One of my favorite moments at NORD’s recent 30th Anniversary celebration was seeing Abbey Meyers and Congressman Henry Waxman reconnect. The two played leading roles in the drama that resulted in the Orphan Drug Act of 1983. Both went on to provide key leadership on related issues — Abbey as the president of NORD for its first 25 years and Rep. Waxman in Congress.
