Doug Mallock, the President of Young People Affected by Huntington Disease (YPAHD), attended his first YPAHD Day in 2012. He’d never been on a plane before and had never met any other family with HD. Attending that first YPAHD day, he says, “I was so nervous but I told myself to meet as many people as I could and sit at as many tables as I could. As soon as I started talking to people, I felt at home. And I left that day with lifelong friendships and a promise to do more with the Society.”
YPHAD continues to grow and flourish. YPAHD Day at last year’s national conference had the highest attendance to date – 72 youth, from teens to people in their mid 30s.
