Huntington Study Group (HSG) recently announced a new online learning series for medical professionals as part of its CME4HDTM curriculum. Using interactive case studies, the course builds on a series of lectures that helps providers to learn more about caring for HD patients while earning continuing medical education credits. Initiatives like these will help the medical field better understand HD and prepare for an influx of new HD patients if and when disease-modifying treatments become available.
HSG also has a new HD Insights Podcast with long-form interviews of people who are shaping HD care and research today. The most recent episode features Dr. Ignacio Muñoz-Sanjuán, Vice President of Translational Biology at CHDI Foundation. He speaks about his work as President and Founder of FACTOR-H, a non-profit that focuses on the Huntington’s disease community in Latin America, and about the situation of the Venezuelan HD community that was essential to the discovery of the gene more than 25 years ago.
