tion at the Lipsett Amphitheater at the NIH Clinical Center.  Dr. Francis S. Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health and one of the leaders of the Human Genome Project (HGP), is expected to address attendees.
  • Pfizer's rare disease research and development unit based in Cambridge, MA, will be encouraging attendees at their Rare Disease Day 2011 event to wear jeans to help raise awareness.  In June 2010, Pfizer established a new research unit devoted to developing new biologics to treat rare diseases.
  • Shire, one of the world's leading specialty biopharmaceutical companies, will encourage employees to wear jeans to work and plans to hand out over 5000 denim blue ribbons to employees at various corporate locations worldwide.
  • Over 200 volunteers, including numerous children, have made over 20,000 Denim Jeans Ribbons™ that will be distributed to rare disease patient advocacy groups, pharmaceutical companies, biotech firms, schools and hospitals on Rare Disease Day 2011. Blue denim ribbon making efforts will continue leading up to February 28, 2011, with a goal of reaching 50,000 handmade ribbons.
  • Over 300 volunteers ranging from jewelry designers to crafters are working on the 7,000 Bracelets for Hope™ campaign.  These blue denim inspired "cause bracelets" will be distributed on Rare Disease Day 2011 to children and families battling rare diseases and serve as symbol of hope to find treatments and cures.
  • A number of schools have signed up to host "Wear That You Care™" denim awareness days and plan to distribute Denim Jeans Ribbons™ in an effort to support the rare disease community.
