2019 Community Education Forum

Generously sponsored by:

The Huntington Society of Canada invites you to attend its annual Community Educational Forum for presentations on research and caregiving.

Every other year, HSC provides a live forum wherein patients and carers can meet to learn about the most recent updates in HD, network with other patients and perhaps most importantly, have the opportunity to have their questions answered by leading professionals who specialize in HD.

This year, the Huntington disease community’s excitement is palpable, because there is hope for treatments that target the root cause of HD. As many of our family members have expressed to us, for the first time that they can recall, they have “hearts full of hope”.

Community Education Forum Agenda:

  • Managing Clinical Trial Expectations– Dr. Michael Hayden, CM OBC MB ChB PhD FRCP(C) FRSC
In his presentation, Dr. Michael Hayden discusses the different components of each phase of a research trial and how there are many HD trials being conducted with different approaches, not just one. He emphasizes the importance of managing our expectations in this exciting time of research, but also encourages us to have realistic hope for the future of HD.
  • A New Era of HD Therapeutic Research–  Dr. Ed Wild, MRCP PhD
For the first time since the HD gene was discovered in 1993, a new era of drug trials, targeting the known cause of HD are underway. Join Dr. Ed Wild to find out how they’re going, what’s next, and how together, we can create a new future where HD is less of a problem for those affected.
  • Plus a local presenter selected the local chapter
