Huntington's Disease Support Group

Alert

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all in-person support groups have been cancelled and will be held virtually on Zoom.

Our HDSA Center of Excellence sponsors a monthly HD Support Group for individuals who are at-risk for developing HD or diagnosed with HD, as well as their families and other concerned parties. Speakers such as healthcare professionals, legal experts, and housing and placement specialists give talks to the group on resources, coping mechanisms, and other topics.
