Held during international Huntington’s Disease Awareness Month in May 2018, this sold-out forum welcomed individuals, families, professionals and supporters from far and wide to listen to a wide range of speakers about research, self-care, planning and personal journeys.
The event was made possible through the generosity of Alecca McKinless, whose bequest enabled this event to be hosted free of charge to attendees and participants. In addition, Alecca’s husband Alan continues to support people impacted by Huntington’s disease, and was adamant that the presentations needed to be available to everyone, not just those who could attend in person. We agree wholeheartedly!
And so, we are delighted to share with you the presentations from our wide range of speakers.
