The UW HDSA Center of Excellence team, in partnership with our friends at Oregon Health Sciences University, knows how valuable it is for those living with HD and their caregivers to come together in person to gain strength from shared experiences. The current COVID-19 pandemic necessitates a new approach to many aspects of life—particularly those that involve gathering together in large groups. We’ve spent the last several months putting together an outstanding LIVE virtual event and look forward to bringing it directly to your living room.
Please REGISTER HERE in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom meeting on October 10th. For questions, please contact Susan Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
