Anthony DeVergillo is a motivated communication professional with a focus in the rare disease space. He lives with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscle-weakening disease, but he never lets it stop him from advocating for people with disabilities to be fully included in society. DeVergillo is currently concentrating his energy on the social barriers that the pandemic has brought into the public view, such as the need for a virtual option for every in-person event. After graduating from Rutgers University, DeVergillo struggled to find a career due to the discrimination behind closed doors against people with disabilities. Amicus Therapeutics was the first to provide him an opportunity to use his abilities as the internal digital communications associate partnering with employees to unify brand, people and message. He also is a board member of Our Odyssey, a nonprofit focusing on empowering young adults living with a rare disease with social connection.
