2019 Education Day


On April 6, 2019, HD Reach hosted the 2019 North Carolina Huntington's Disease Statewide Education Day, "Looking Back, Reaching Forward" in Raleigh at the McKimmon Conference and Training Center (NC State University, 1101 Gorman Street, Raleigh, NC  27606).

At the North Carolina HD Education Day, attendees learned more about living life well with HD from some outstanding speakers and local North Carolina HD experts.  There were breakout sessions for everyone in the HD community, from those living with HD, those at-risk for the disease, HD caregivers as well as youth. This years educational day will be packed with practical information.
