    We are volunteers raising funds and awareness for a treatment and ultimately a cure for Huntington disease. While this promising research is ongoing, we try to improve the lives of families affected by HD.

2011/10/01 – HD Symposium

aka Family Day…

The Huntington Society of Canada Presents HD Symposium

October 1, 2011

Preparing for the Journey…

Please join Dr. Ed Wild, neurologist and co-founder of HDBuzz.net, for a riveting presentation full of wisdom.  Optimizing life is the primary focus of Dr. Wild’s message.  He will explore the good news and how we can prepare for the journey; what we can do to make a difference now, and what we can do to make the most of the support available, maximizing our independence.

Research and clinical care in HD are constantly moving forward, without effective disease-slowing treatments it can easily feel like nothing is happening.  Until that breakthrough arrives, there is still plenty we can do.  “Optimizing life” with HD means staying active, informed and involved.  Join Dr. Wild as he helps us see what we can do and how we can do it.

What is an HSC HD Symposium?

Dr. Wild will be coming to you live via videoconference from London, England. Following his presentation, Dr. Wild will be fielding live questions from the Huntington Society of Canada community.  Volunteers at each location will also create a local program to accompany Dr. Wild’s presentation.
