Horizon’s Commitment to Patients and their Advocates

The first ever Rare Autoimmune Emerging Leaders’ Summit was held, uniting an inspiring group of 26 patient advocate leaders in the rare and autoimmune space. This historic summit provided a platform for meaningful connections and a chance for groups to gain insight from each other.

Horizon recently launched the first-ever TED Mobile Exhibit in Atlanta, Georgia! This exhibit brought much-needed education and awareness to underserved communities by providing resources and information about Thyroid Eye Disease (TED). Attendees were able to learn more about TED and its impacts, making this event a true success.

Horizon invited patients, care partners, and patient advocacy leaders to their U.S. headquarters for a unique event to discuss current challenges the NMO community is facing. The goal was to brainstorm ideas and opportunities to better support this community. It was a great opportunity to come together and share experiences, providing invaluable insight and knowledge to help guide the way forward.

At the 17th World Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy) Congress, a unique and powerful exhibition of photos was hosted, featuring individuals living with NMOSD. These brave individuals attended the opening in-person to speak to Congress participants, giving a personal insight into their experiences and journeys of living with the disease. It was a truly remarkable event that provided an invaluable opportunity to raise awareness of NMOSD in Europe.

In Brazil, the importance of multidisciplinary care to overcome the social and economic burden of rare autoimmune diseases has been supported through disease education initiatives that involve the art of amplifying the patient’s voice.

For instance, the “Fazendo Arte com Gustavo Rosa” art workshops for NMOSD patients and the short film “Atrás dos Meus Olhos”, which tells the story of a TED patient, are two such initiatives that have helped bring much-needed attention to these diseases.

Horizon joined forces with the Arthritis Foundation to become the sole National Presenting Sponsor for the organization’s flagship event, Walk to Cure Arthritis! Our teams across the nation volunteered and participated at over 70 events, making a powerful statement in the fight against arthritis.
