One of my coworkers has narcolepsy and constantly comes in late every day. I've noticed lately that he's been reprimanded for missing meetings that they schedule early in the morning before he usually gets in. Is there anything I can do about this or is it even wrong?

There's nothing you can do about this other than talk to your friend.
Your friend however, should talk with his doctor and his manager and see if there's a way to make this job work, given his condition and his accommodations.
If they can't make it work, your friend should get advice from his doctor as to what he can expect to face regarding his ability to wake up at a regular time. Then your friend should seek employment where that can be accommodated.
Your friend should probably get himself to a support group where he can learn more about how others with his condition deal with it and find suitable employment. Then can also advise him about applicable workplace laws in his locale.
Go to your colleague and ask them. Bring some helpful information such as what protections your jurisdiction has for people with their condition (see if you can clearly determine that narcolepsy is a disability and show that to them). Tell them you'll support them. Ask them if they'd like you to ask others for support. Determine what can be done to accommodate their condition, like moving morning meetings.
Document when your employer is unfair to the employee regardless. If they are fired, it may become very helpful to them.
Also, you might want to point out why mistreating any employee is bad for the entire company, from negative impacts on morale to bad reviews on social media (such as Glassdoor) that can impact not only recruiting efforts but customer relations as well.
