Education and Resources

Baltimore Huntington's Disease Center

One of the goals of the Huntington's Disease Society of America (HDSA) and the Baltimore Huntington's Disease Center is to promote education about Huntington's disease. Our aim is to help patients and families better understand the disease and its progression in order to plan and prepare for the future. We do this with support groups, individual and family counseling, a list of relevant publications and helpful web links.
