Patients at the Heart Program

Harmony’s Patients at the Heart Program

Harmony’s Patients at the Heart program was developed to underscore our ongoing commitment to support the comprehensive needs of people affected by sleep disorders. Since its launch in 2019, the program has funded more than $200,000 in awards toward innovative patient-centric programs.

In 2021, $75,000 in Patients at the Heart funds are being awarded to not-for-profit organizations that are working to support and address the challenges of people living with sleep disorders and rare diseases who experience excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS).

“Our goal is to improve the lives of people living with sleep disorders and their families, and we hope by supporting innovative programs, we can make a positive difference for these communities.”

Cate McCanless, SVP, Corporate Affairs and Public Policy, Harmony Biosciences

“Patients at the Heart enabled Project Sleep to adapt our programming to better foster community and connection virtually during the pandemic when isolation was a major concern. The funds allowed us to increase story-sharing opportunities and to create a fantastic new video series and social campaign highlighting healthcare providers living with narcolepsy. Thank you to Harmony for providing critical and meaningful support during such a challenging year.”

Julie Flygare, President & CEO, Project Sleep
